Women’s Rehabilitation Project
The Women’s Rehabilitation Project is an income-generation programme that equips vulnerable women to earn a sustainable income through the production and sale of bar soap. The project also includes the sale of ‘Dot Glasses‘, low cost glasses manufactured particularly for rural populations who cannot access an optometrist, by Community Health Volunteers.
The 84 women who are a part of the project reinvest their incomes from the sale of soap back into the project to ensure the project’s sustainability. They will be earning over KES 6,000 within the year while also continuing to produce soap with their own income. The women now have stable incomes and use the money from their table banking group on school fees or expanding their other businesses.
We would like to thank the Charles Hayward Foundation for its support of the project.
