Women dwelling in Kibera put up outstanding performance as they fight poverty in the slum. Some of them where once prostitutes but after a series of training and awareness raised regarding the deadly trade they were involved in, a tremendous change is being experienced. These women are now engaging in different activities including making hand crafts like jewellery, bags, clothes to mention afew. for more information, visit this link.
And to watch the video of our work .
Kibera is the largest urban slum in Africa and its located in Nairobi, Kenya. Groups of people have come up to address the un ending challenges in the slum, women’s organization inclusive and these have been assigned the project of leading a team of five volunteers in setting up women self help groups in Kibera.
The overall goal of the project is economic independence for the women. Each self help group will work towards creating and selling traditional jewellery and handicrafts from Kenya.
Funds for the project are limited and we foresee the need for more voluntary participation.
We therefore appeal to all well wishers to support this great cause by donating what ever they have (funds and manpower) to make this project a success and improve the livelihoods of our brothers and sister who dwell in this slum.
