About Kenana Knitters:
Kenana Knitters is located in Njoro in Nakuru County of Kenya. Njoro is mainly a farming area where agricultural work is easier to come by for men than it is for womenfolk.
Job opportunities in Njoro include working in flower farms, sawmills, and casual labourer work. The payment in these jobs tend to reflect gender stereotypes and some of these organizations provide relatively low earnings, poor working conditions, and limited advancement opportunities. Further, women usually are paid less than men, even when women perform the same or equal-value jobs.
Kenana Knitters believes that women are the heartbeat of their communities. Kenana Knitters’ ethos is to make a significant social impact in rural Kenya by empowering women to take charge of their lives through dignified work in a safe, family-friendly working environment.
The sale of Kenana Knitters' items help women knit a brighter future through additional skills development offerings including IT courses and literacy classes. Kenana Knitters also invests in the overall welfare of the women by providing VCT, Family Planning and Health Clinics.
