Focus Africa Winnipeg, began partnering with the women of Beacon of Hope in Nairobi Kenya in 2005 and began working with their tailoring and weaving centers soon after.
We have made suggestions of items and styles we think would sell well in the North American market. To get the finished product here, we have found people who are coming from Kenya to Winnipeg and are willing to carry the product here for us. The items are made from African fabric, mostly cotton. The jewellery is made from recycled paper often together with glass beads.
All staff are unpaid volunteers meaning all monies raised goes directly back to help the women of Beacon of Hope. On behalf of them we thank you for your support!
