Our Mission

Transforming lives from Nairobi’s slums…

We purchase hand-made crafts from artisans living in Nairobi’s poorest communities providing a viable outlet for the sale of their products.

We donate profits to ​Hope’s Promise Orphan Ministries for Sanctuary of Hope family-style homes for orphans from the slums.
