The joint aim is to train the support group in Mbale so that the women in the group can offer and sell their products in Kenya and Germany, and thereby secure a means of subsistence for their families.
The sale of the products will be carried out in accordance with the FAIR TRADE guidelines in both Kenya and Germany. However, this requires obtaining the respective recognition and registration in Kenya. We are currently in the process of obtaining recognition.
Our current craft training courses, which the women have chosen to undertake, are:
- Creating paper out of harvested banana leaves; this paper is then crafted into art cards – using a wide range of different applications
- Creating paper beads in order to create jewellery – especially necklaces
- Sewing school uniforms for nursery school and school children, as well as various cloth bags
