Mamabiashara
KARIOBANGI

In a slum on the other side of Nairobi, Mama B was doing workshops within the FUDAKA project (see below) with a group of sex workers. It became apparent that the priority for these women was finding a way to get out of the sex industry, while still being able to feed and house their children. After some time researching possibilities, we have begun Mama Biashara Kariobangi. All 25 women in the group will be working together (an incredible achievement in Kenya, I assure you!) in a woollen rug making co-operative. Markets have been identified as have premises. Start up costs have been beaten down and the project started officially on 19th November. After an initial feet-finding period of three months, the project is committed to giving a place to a new worker (with training) every month from now on.
