We just received our latest shipment of scarves from Nairobi; the scarves are available for sale on our Etsy site. We have over 10 new designs and colors available for purchase! A bit more about the Maisha Collective: The Maisha Collective: Every Scarf Tells A Story
The Maisha Collective, a project of Heshima Kenya, empowers refugee girls and young women from DR Congo, Somalia, Ethiopia, Sudan, and Burundi with economic opportunities to rebuild their lives with peace and dignity. By managing a business collective that designs and produces a line of unique hand-dyed scarves, participants gain life-long business and marketing skills that develop their confidence and prepare them for future independence. The power of purchase inspires their journey to support, empower, and ultimately protect other young refugee women.
All profits are returned directly to Collective participants as weekly wages and support of their ongoing engagement in Heshima Kenya's education and shelter programs.
