Local Self -help project in Nairobi, Kenya

Located in Nairobi Kenya, is a women’s organisation known as Kibera Jewellery. The organisation specialises in indigenous jewellery in demand from most African tribes.

The jewellery is made by local women who are self-employed. Each self help group work towards creating and selling traditional jewellery and handicrafts from Kenya.

Funds for the project are limited. Nevertheless, these self-help enterprises are lucrative and the women are able to sustain themselves from the proceeds of these projects. Above all, the Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare in Kenya is supporting the program.
