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.

Impact

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.

Publishing in Africa at the London Book Fair By Katie Isbester

I didn’t mean to go to the talk. There were some 30,000 people at the London Book Fair and I was supposed to meet at least a few of them. Instead I found myself going to a talk on publishing in Africa because of Nasio Trust. I knew it was trying to build a library, the first of its kind in Western Kenya, and I was rather curious.
