The Entrepreneurship Program


Change begins with you, and breaking the cycle of poverty begins with providing opportunity. By providing aspiring female entrepreneurs with business management education, mentoring, networking, and ongoing work opportunities, we can create a sustainable solution to alleviating poverty in Kenya.

The Entrepreneurship Program

Equipping women with the knowledge to run their own businesses is just the beginning. Through our Entrepreneurship Program, we're able to provide a driven group of women with educational and mentoring opportunities that will help them to start their own businesses. Through structured training programs and consistent oversight, we make sure that the women enrolled in our program are able to succeed in their community for years to come.

PURCHASE HANDMADE. CHANGE LIVES.

Each purchase does more than to support entrepreneurship - it provides opportunity and dignified work for women. Through Jimani Collections, we can transform the lives of women artisans by offering a steady income that will allow them to provide for themselves and their families.

100% of the profits of each bracelet purchased will go towards women's programming for artisans in Kenya.

Eunice

Eunice is a single mother of three children, all of which are young adults, and she is currently supported by the church. She used to own a kiosk and was a hawker, but lost everything in the post-election violence. Eunice currently lives in Kiambaa and makes money by cleaning people’s homes, but her passion lies in knitting bags. After leaving our program, Eunice's dream is to have enough money to buy beads and thread to create handbags.

The Process

Our products are handmade by women in Kenya using locally sourced and recycled materials such as brass, glass beads, and thread. Our women are taught design and product creation skills by local artisans, and they're able to apply these techniques through the creation of these limited edition bracelets.
