Deborah has faced a lot of pressure from society especially with being a disabled woman in Kenya. Many of her friends will seek out “sponsorship” by men who in return demand sexual rights. Deborah did not want a life like this and chose to find a way to be independent. This road was not easy and she spent many nights wondering how she could provide for herself and create a better path for her future. She soon found Imani Collective in August 2015 and has excelled in every project that has been given to her.
Deborah was one of the first artisans to be employed in the “city” location of Old Town Mombasa and worked in Jenny’s home before our second location officially opened in March of 2016.
Every day Deborah is able to walk through the doors of Imani Collective and know there is a beautiful family waiting for her. A family that loves, cares and encourages.
Deborah is a perfect example of grace, love and perseverance.
We are honored to have her a part of this global family.
We believe in empowering the whole person and providing dignified jobs that allow for our artisans to not merely survive,
but to thrive in the life they live.
