The story of my life and my business has been on so many platforms but people only want to know the story without listening to stories behind the scenes, be slow to judge and listen. Read my stories on the Kenyan daily newspapers.

Your junk can be someone’s treasure

I had to reblog  this.

  • Yes, that you might be seing as junk in your house could be someone’s treasure somewhere in kenya, I share this story with a lot of pain in my heart when sometimes I find my hands tied struggling to help these young children suffering from cerebral palsy. It pains sometimes that’s their parents can’t afford even the money for their therapy and that’s why I came with an idea of training them on how to make african sandals so that they earn something to put food on their table and be able to pay therapy for these children. Magdaline is in her first day for the training on how to do the beadwork but our main challenge is where to put her three years daughter Gift, who’s suffering from cerebral palsy. We only have one option with us, though it might look painful but that’s the situation I need to…

  •         Yes, that you might be seing as junk in your house could be someone’s treasure somewhere in kenya, I share this story with a lot of pain in my heart when sometimes I find my hands tied struggling to help these young children suffering from cerebral palsy. It pains sometimes that’s their parents can’t afford even the money for their therapy and that’s why I came with an idea of training them on how to make african sandals so that they earn something to put food on their table and be able to pay  therapy for these children. Magdaline is in her first day for the training on how to do the beadwork but our main challenge is where to put her three years daughter Gift, who’s suffering from cerebral palsy. We only have one option with us, though it might look painful but that’s the situation I need to share with the rest of the world, Gift was tied with a piece of cloth on one of my chair in the workshop so that the mother could be trained. This hurts a lot but we depend on people like you reading this article to support us in anyway you can, By buying our sandals you support a family here. They’re handmade sandals made with these wonderful families. The other option of helping us by donating to us those you call junk in your house, we need wheelchairs, mattresses, blankets, clothes, toys, financial support or any other support you can give us to help these families

THE MASAA MARKET.

4 Sep

IMG_3242 The MASAA MARKET is a market that was founded by Happy Feet African Sandals and Rona Foundation to help the widows, orphans,disabled and the youth to come and sell their own crafts. The people who sell in this market are the same people who make the things they sell. This is a market without brokers. Like as seen in other markets, where brokers hike the prices of products, in the MASAA MARKET you deal with the producers themselves, the widows, orphan, disabled and the youth. The Market was Launched on 31st August, 2014 at Meladen Restaurant in upperhill near Nairobi Club, Kenya.This idea come into place as we were looking for ways of fighting Widow abuse in Kenya, and we came to realise when this widows are empowered and given some work to do they will depend on themselves and can stand strong infront of the abusers. HAPPY FEET AFRICAN SANDALS is an organization that was formed after a long struggle of Kevin Aloo( the CEO and Founder) in Kibera slum. The story of Happy Feet African sandals will be the next topic in my post.Rona Foundation which was also founded by Roseline Orwa, is an organization that deals with widows and orphans and its story will be in our next postings too. WHY THE MASAA MARKET? here you promote the widows, orphans, disabled and the youth directly as you interact with them face to face , unlike in other markets where you deal with brokers who doesn’t even know how to make the crafts. A purchase in MASAA MARKET, you promote a widow, an orphan, a physically challenged person or a youth in Kenya. Buy Kenyan build Kenya.

No matter the challenges we can still do it
