Tour Details

A group of women involved in basket weaving have come together to create a support group that helps them make a living. We are giving you the opportunity to visit them on their weaving days and do a weaving workshop. 

1-1 workshop where you can interact with the ladies, hear their stories and learn a new skill.

Village Women in Kenya are usually expected to stay home, look after the children, cook and clean. These women have stood up for themselves and taken the initiative to start something for themselves. You’d be supporting this empowerment!
