Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 is a bible passage that talks about a time for everything and how while each time and season we experience in our lives may seem random, it serves a divine purpose.
This year we have had moments where things looked blurry and the future unknown, but we held fast and believed that all this would get behind us. And guess what? The last month has served us moments of wins and celebrations that we would love to share because it is through your support that we get to do all this.
Employee Mental Wellbeing
Amidst a deteriorating global economy that has pushed prices of goods and services over the roof, conflicts and an unstable political environment, and the uncertainty that comes with it, we understand too well that our employees are affected by these issues and hence the need for combative action.
Mental health classes during our RISE sessions sensitize our artisans on the importance of acknowledging their emotions, speaking out, how to treat fellow employees in the workplace during such volatile times and how recognizing fellow employees who may need help.
We believe that sustainability begins with an individual, without which it can only lead to burnout, chronic depression, or even anxiety.
Mtepeni baby visit
The celebrations turn into song and dance as close to fifteen women from our Mtepeni location enter Fatuma Joseph’s home, close to a mile from our workshop. This time round, welcome baby Shemima Kadzo to the Imani family.
Baby Shemima’s brother Davies just graduated from our daycare after three years and six months with us and is now attending school.
“It makes me proud to be part of these kids’ upbringing till they are ready to start school. All kids who pass through our childcare perform exemplary in their school entry interviews, showing the good work we put into their development.” Says Regina, who heads our childcare program on location.
Fatuma now resumes work knowing her child is well taken care of and she can spend quality time with her kid between her breaks.
