Challenge

HIV+ women in Eldoret, Kenya often struggle to support themselves and their children. Often they are the sole supporter of their family and sometimes they do not own property to grow food. Teaching them a skill that can help generate income can improve their families health and well being.

Solution

This project will help women at the IMANI workshop to expand their product line. These quilts will be sold as an income generating project for the women. The skills learned will be transferred to other projects such as bags and placemats.

Long-Term Impact

We will teach 5 to 10 women the skills necessary to make baby quilts and wall hangings to be sold at the workshop and at an outlet in Indianapolis. This will increase the product line of the IMANI Workshop and also give them skills to expand to other projects.
