1 Item = 1 Day of Work
Each item made by KISANY represents one day of work and a step towards a more stable LIFE for a woman in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Every woman who hand-embroiders with JOY has known war, violence and poverty. A day of work removes her from the cycle of brutality and allows her to feel PRIDE.
She can feed her family, send her children to school, and find a safe home.
Needles and Thread Instead
of Guns and Bullets
Work empowers. In the unstable, destructive East African countries where KISANY works, self respect and confidence are rare commodities in women. Through consistent work, we help women find DIGNITY.
This leads to stronger families, healthier communities and a more promising future. With work comes the opportunity to make your own choices, to determine your own destiny. Through skills training and consistent employment, KISANY helps women take control of their own lives and experience FREEDOM.
