An African Fair Trade Boutique in Washington, DC

Meet the Artisans: Visitors from Kenya on Saturday, September 17th

Bella from Tie and DyeVisitors are like the water of rain. 
Mgeni ni maji ya mvua.

- Swahili proverb

A visitor can refresh and energize like water on parched ground. They can also pass quickly like the rain. We must enjoy them while we can.

We are thrilled to have a group of women from Amani ya Juu in Nairobi, Kenya coming to visit this month.  All five women are leaders at Amani Kenya. Elizabethoversees patterns and materials in Distribution. Jeritaencourages women in Production. Bella maintains excellence in Tie and Dye. Trizah records and checks work in Quality Control. Joyce provides leadership in Administration. They are coming to the US to share about the work of Amani ya Juu and catch a glimpse of its impact in here.

Plan to join us in the Amani boutique for a day of activities to welcome our guests!
