Since March 2020, when Kenya registered its first case of COVID19, we’ve had to change our focus from training the 10 women in the art of weaving to training them along with the rest of the artisans on the application of COVID19 preventive measures in accordance to the guidelines received from the Ministry of health. During this time, we have been able to disburse food relief as well as sanitary care to all our artisans as they navigate uncertainty amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
With us having to shut down the workshop, being on lockdown and the virus spreading across Kenya within these 3 months, we are grateful that none of our artisans or staffs has contracted the virus (so far) as they have been equipped with accurate and adequate information on how to stay safe, maintaining social distancing and sanitization, along with provision of masks and soap while they are at home.
We continue to thank you for your generous support in this project as we look forward to the new normal and resuming work in full capacity to continue in training these women in weaving.
