About Jacaranda Creations

Jacaranda products are handcrafted with locally-sourced material in Nairobi, Kenya, by women in the local slums. The proceeds provide earnings for the women to support their children and families.

Meeting spiritual and physical needs by forming relationships where training and sewing skills are learned and creativity is celebrated. We build strong minds and recognize the beauty and dignity of women. Jacaranda Creations has ten branches (sites) of it's own in various slums around the city and we hope to see this number continue to grow.

Women's Empowerment

The women’s stories are the heartbeat of Jacaranda. Struggles, disillusionment and pain begin to fade with every achievement won, their lives forever changed by the work. Journey with us to Nairobi, through the pictures and stories… see and hear what we do every day.
