Jimani Collections began with a small group of impoverished Kenyan women and a short class based on learning basic jewelry skills. With the help of many dedicated people both in the US and in Kenya, Jimani Collections has grown from a one-week class into an ongoing training and design entity.
Jimani Collections seeks to create a sustainable solution to poverty. We work with some of the poorest in the world - women who have experienced a harsh reality that few in the US can imagine. We offer these women employment and education within product design and product creation. By building a bridge between consumers and artisans in the developing world, we're able to promote equitable trade while alleviating widespread poverty.
Provide women with vocational skills through targeted training programs like the Entrepreneurship Program.
GOOD WORKING ENVIRONMENT
Offer sustainable income and a safe workplace for women who have neither.
Showcase the workmanship of the women through unique, well-crafted products and sales channels.
Through innovation, education, and design, Jimani Collections exists to transform and expand access to economic opportunity for artisans in underserved communities worldwide.
