During the December holiday, we set out to meet one of the women support group based in Kibera. This was on our continually search for brands that create African designs and local products. Upon arrival we met Angelina the support group lead, a multitalented woman who trains the group into making various products using her artistic skills. Some of their items include; Mats which comes in various shapes and colors depending on their purposes ie. (floor, table, bathroom & toilet mats), baby shoes crochet, homemade detergents from regular soaps to antiseptics, bags, and other accessories. Through this they are able to monetize their products enabling them to support themselves as most of them are either widows or single mums. I found the group to be welcoming and high in spirit in their activities enabling me to learn how to sew mats. No doubt the experience was one of a kind.

Angelina not only supports her group but also reaches out to others in different regions in the country, offering training on various skills including culinary, various crochet products, and detergent production. Her area of specialization is in culinary, She can create meals from anything edible, ever taken banana splits snack, sweet potato smoothie, and Groundnut cake?, in a nutshell she is an incredible chef. Her complementary skills enabled her to attended the international cooks day in Italy to present local dishes from Kenya, showcasing talent from Kibera to the world. She provides culinary services and training to households, groups, institution, and events. If you are interested in learning or supporting what Angelina and the group does, you can reach out to her through this contact 0723497289 or reach out to me via this email: margaretoremm@gmail.com. Have a prosperous and blessed 2018.
