Heart-wrenching need.  Seemingly inescapable poverty. 

Extreme poverty all around. Statistics suddenly become names and faces. Children, youth, and adults, all seeking a way out.  What can be done in the midst of such tragedy?

Kisanii Market provides a way out.

 We train and develop local talent within poverty-stricken communities in the art of craftsmanship.  Local resources are cultivated to create a “hand-up” poverty alleviation channel that fuels durable, holistic community transformation.

Where We Work

Kenya_in_africa.png

Gichagi slum, located just outside Ngong, Kenya, is home to more than 20,000 people facing severe poverty. Families live in makeshift shelters, lacking proper facilities and struggling with limited access to essentials like healthcare and education. Despite the harsh conditions, residents show resilience, engaging in informal work to make ends meet. The slum reflects both the challenges and the determination of its inhabitants to strive for a better future.
