Challenge

The artisan sector is the 2nd largest employer in the developing world. Yet the majority of artisans are women who live in rural communities without access to the markets, skills, and tools to be successful. We are dedicated to changing that. Since 2013, Imani Collective has provided artisans with on-the-job skills training, consistent wages, access to education, opportunities for personal + professional growth, a space to dream big, a supportive community and empowerment through it all.

Solution

Sustainable socio-economic empowerment of the whole person is at the heart of Imani's mission. We believe that women and their children hold the key to this social change. We know that when women rise in the economy, the whole country rises. So, we invest in generations of women because we have confidence in their ability to achieve (and exceed) their goals. We unleash a women's greatness through empowerment, opportunity + community.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that women around the globe have the capacity, creativity, and determination to uplift themselves, their families, and their communities-all they need are the resources. As our organization grows in size and scope, so does our commitment to empower more artisan women, youth, and families in Kenya. It is with your support that our artisans are actively creating brighter futures for themselves and their families. Together - we are creating something beautiful.
