How you can help

Our project benefits artisan women in Kenya by helping them with resources such as, quality beads, leather, jewelry making kits, and sewing kits. This will help them make accessories, sandals, bags etc. using the skills that have been passed down through generations. We buy the handmade goods at fair market price to create a recurring, sustainable market for them to provide for their families.

About this nonprofit

Our women led nonprofit empowers artisan women in Kenya make a sustainable, dignified living using skills passed down through generations in beading, weaving, basketry, sculpting and art to provide for their families, support the community and be a source of economic development. We provide the artisan women with resources, training and help solving the unique challenges facing poor African women.
