Sewing Independence

Despite difficult circumstances around the globe, our Mama ya Mapendo cooperative is doing wonderfully! Through this popular community center program, local mothers have the opportunity to increase their sewing expertise and respond better to the demands of their customers.

This income-generating activity gives them independence, so they are able to meet their needs on their own-an accomplishment women seek when enrolling in Malaika’s programming. And to make this project even more holistic, profits are reinvested into our initiatives.

Items ranging from masks to beautiful beautiful bags are always available in a fashionable variety and are sold at local Hyper Psaro market as well as at Malaika’s school and community center.
