Early in the New Year, we completed a campaign to fund training of women in Kenya, through Rockflower partner, Cherehani Africa. Subsequently, Robert Mboya, Cherehani's COO & Co-Founder, sent a few pictures of the young women who, as a result of our fundraiser, are receiving training in the tailoring trade.
Rockflower completed funding of an initiative to extend opportunities to young women to launch a tailoring business in Kenya.Building on the success of this fundraiser, Rockflower plans to raise funds for an additional 130 women as part of the Rockflower's Cherehani Project.
Rockflower is pleased to announce a new partnership with Cherehani Africa, a social enterprise that pursues financial inclusion through asset financing of sewing machines and provision of business loans to asset-less but skilled women in emerging and under-served markets.
Today, Rockflower launched a fundraiser to promote financial independence for young women in Kenya. The goal of this fundraiser is to provide funding for 40 sewing machines and technical training of young women in Kenya to facilitate them launching a career in tailoring. A sewing machine costs $100 and the training materials approximately $25.
