“which translates to earn a living” was established as a platform to empower underprivileged women in East Africa by providing them an opportunity to learn, earn a decent living for themselves and be self reliant. We stop resources from going to waste by turning off-cuts into really dope products & empower our artisans with every piece sold.
“We believe social and environmental issues go hand in hand and through exploring the connection between these issues, we've found sustainable solutions to the issues of poverty affecting women and children in underprivileged communities. We partner with female artisans from these communities to produce high quality products with the aim of creating employment, developing children’s potential and tackling textile waste.”
The development of artisan workshops into production units and producer companies, which when provided with the correct & appropriate resources will be a direct way of creating growth, empowerment and economic opportunities across Africa.
“I can’t single handedly ensure that the rights that my grandmother and mother fought so hard for will be preserved for the daughter that I might someday have. It will take more than me alone to pull the lives of millions of women and children out of poverty, but who will I be if I don’t care enough to try? What mountains could we move if we joined forces and worked together to be of service to something greater than ourselves?”
