We are very glad to announce the start of another phase to train women on how to make hand-crafted sandals. This is part of our Women Empowerment Project and it has been made possible with funding from The Royal Thai Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya. The training started in March 2018. The women are really excited and working hard to enhance creativity, make various products which will be later sold to boost their earnings.
The Women Empowerment Project (WEP) is an initiative aiming at socially, economically and spiritually empowering girls and women through skills development to increase their employability, household income and building inner peace through mindfulness meditation. This particular project also aims at teaching the women to always work together because our fore fathers embraced team work which brought them success. The group is currently focusing on 22 women. Our target is to reach out to as many women and girls in our community by the end of the program but to also work within our limited resources.
