We provide full-time employment to over 80 people in Maai Mahiu (and growing!), mostly mothers of children with special needs. We also provide part-time employment to 200 Maasai Maker Mums from the Ngong Hills, who bead our bracelets and dog collars.
We pay our staff above-market, living wages, and provide health insurance for all employees. This is something we take great pride in considering less than 19% of Kenyans have health insurance. Around half of our team in Kenya own their own land and house, in a country where less than 10% of the people own their own home. These are the markers of effective sustainable change that is breaking the cycle of poverty.
