"When a woman is economically empowered, the society shines," says Karimi. One of those artisans, Veronica Wanja, is now happy to be doing what she likes most. "I happened to meet Karimi five years ago, at our church," she recalls. "I was desperate in life – just imagine – with three kids and not any income. She introduced me to Jorova. I thank her very much. That business has made me who I am today. My kids go to school just like other kids. I also managed to build my own house. God bless your trusting us."
Some Jorova products use Kanga, the traditional Swahili fabric that Kenyan women use and wear for so many things. Josephine says she's also pleased Jorova Crafts is developing unique designs. "To me, the sky is the limit!"
These earrings are really pretty and unique. The hammered brass is beautiful.
