“This project has empowered me to break the cycle of poverty and create a sustainable livelihood for myself and my family. Today, I am proud to say that I have become the main supplier of purely organic vegetables in my area.
Not only have I transformed my own life, but I am also making a positive impact on the health and well-being of my community.” Rehema Khamis – Urban Farming Training Beneficiary
“I am now able to meet my family’s day-to-day needs through the sale of cakes and scones, which I supply to schools in my neighborhood. Furthemore, I use charcoal briquettes, a reliable, easy to make and energy efficient fuel to bake my products.
The briquettes have allowed me to lower my cost of production and enabled me to bake higher quality products since the briquettes are clean and smokeless.” Jackline Andaya – Food Processing Training Beneficiary
“I received training on briquette production, and since then, I have been earning Ksh 6,000 every week from the sale of my briquettes. I now produce high-quality briquettes in large quantities which I sell through my online page called Noor Women Group Briquettes.
Thanks to the power of digital marketing taught to us by AWAK, I am now able to receive orders from different parts of the country which has enabled me to earn a livelihood and create employment.” Mariam Omar – Briquette Training Beneficiary
