“My income from knitting is what my family depends on. I pay school fees, provide food and shelter with my income. I thank God for this.” 

Joyce Cherotich

One of the most beautiful things that our knitters comment on is the sense of togetherness that they feel when they come to work with other women – where they sing and share stories as they work.
Located in the agricultural community of Njoro, Kenya, knitters are provided a safe, family-friendly working environment. 
Income from their knitting empowers these women – many of whom are single mothers – by offering them a chance to work and take charge of their lives, with pride and dignity.
As well as providing the knitters and spinners with a regular income, they are provided with a monthly health clinic, including free eye checks and glasses if needed. A savings plan, daily newspaper and access to free electricity for phone and torch charging are also provided.
