“I am 36 years old, and I have been a wood carver for the past 17 years. I was born in Rwanda, but I flew the country during the war to found peace in Kenya. Wood is my passion, and my life-support as allowed my 6 children to attend school and eat regularly. I am very thankful for this order, and I pray for more to improve the quality and quantity of our work.”
“I am a blessed father of 4 children, and I have been part of the Rangau community for almost 3 years. This job changed my life, and the life of my family. I thank Artisan Fashion so much for providing us work and I am looking forward to receive more orders to expand our community and create employment for more people.’’
