Summary

Imani Collective recently opened up our 3rd women's empowerment program in Turkana, Kenya, and are wanting to build a space for our growing team. We need to secure 13 acres of land and build 3 workshops to provide even more artisans with a secure space to work, eat, and look after their children. Our Turkana location currently houses 13 artisans in a rented church without electricity or running water. We need more space to set our own schedules, work more efficiently, and grow our community!

Challenge

Imani Collective needs to expand its operations and economic impact on individuals in Turkana, Kenya. We need to secure 13 acres of land and build 5 workshops to provide 40 more artisans with a secure space to work, eat, and look after their children. Our Turkana location currently houses 13 artisans in a rented church without electricity or running water.

Solution

Turkana is the poorest region in Kenya economically. Many in Turkana are unable to provide for themselves due to a lack of viable employment opportunities. Building up Kenya's economy and workforce on a national scale starts in Turkana. To give the people of Turkana access to dignified work and take more people out of poverty, we need to provide a safe and secure center for new artisans to work and self-develop.

Long-Term Impact

This building project has the potential to provide an extra 40 individuals access to dignified work, socio-economic stability, and upward mobility out of generational poverty. By bringing more skilled workers into Kenya's workforce, the country's population will be able to support and employ one another, improve their living standards and drive progress towards the creation of a sustained and inclusive economy for Kenya.
