Direct Fair Trade with Farmers in Kenya Our Accomplishments
We appreciate the skills of Kenyan craftsmen and craftswomen. Products we buy and import to the Czech Republic are processed from locally sourced materials according to traditional African craft techniques. We always pay a fair price based on local standards.
We have a long-term business relationship with selected manufacturing teams and collectives, trying to support and advance their businesses in other aspects as well. For example, we have helped to establish a community chicken farm in Tabaca and funded a financial sustainability training.
We work with the following craft collectives:
Self-help group “Single Mothers” from the Kibera slum – paper bead manufacture
Self-help group “Victorious” from the Kibera slum – bone jewelry manufacture
Self-help group “Smolart” from the village of Tabaka – talc decoration manufacture
