DESCRIPTION

We are an organization of 11 women who live in Kibera Slum in Nairobi. Kibera is Africa’s largest slum. Most of us are HIV positive. Due to the initiative of Abdul we are now able to generate income for our families that make our lives a bit more bearable.

We make different types of jewelries from bracelets, earrings, necklaces, bags to key cords. At our workshop we also have our own little shop were we sell our self-made handicrafts.

During this one to two hour workshop we will teach you how to make the local jewelries and you can create your own piece of artwork. Off course you can take it home afterwards, a beautiful memory of Kenya.

Price includes:

  • The handicraft workshop

Price excludes:

  • Transportation from your hotel to our workshop location
  • The materials you use (bracelet or necklace material cost between 100 - 500 KES)

Hi, I am Abdul Kassim from Nairobi, Kenya. I am the founder of an organization that makes jewelries with the goal to improve the lives of mostly HIV positive women and children in Kibera slum. We started with 4 women and now we are with 11.

It was lovely, there were almost 30 women working on an order for 25,000 bracelets for the Netherlands. We took some doughnuts for them as well expecting only 11 women oooops but hopefully they just shared it out over tea time :) I must say, they were incredibly fast at making the jewelry and really great to see them getting such big orders! We also spoke to Abdul who told us about his story and how the workshop helps fund a couple of schools within Kibera as well. Beth and Fiona were really engaging and so fluent in English, it made asking questions so much easier. We ended up making 5 bracelets and also bought a few pretty pieces from the shop. It was a wonderful experience!
