In Kenya, parents must pay for their children’s education, and as a result many children are not able to get an education. Denur Crafts provides employment for mothers so that they can earn sufficient income to send their children to school and have an acceptable standard of living. Founded in 1994 with just 4 members, the collective has grown to include over 40 women.  Proceeds pay for members’ children to go to school, with 80 children currently supported by the sale of  Denur’s crafts. We are involved in production of handicrafts including jewelry, soapstone carvings, wooden carvings, baskets, and our signature banana fiber mobiles.  Using local materials and traditional methods, each member creates their own designs. The work is produced in Nairobi and the surrounding areas.
