OUR STORY

Our production centre has been a driving force in combating the devastating effects of the HIV/ AIDS pandemic by offering work to women who have completed the BOH Vocational Training College. Local and global markets present high demand for good quality, hand-made products and represent the very entities that keep our production centre thriving and sustainable. Women who once faced a hopeless future suddenly find a renewed sense of hope and self worth as their God given talents can flourish and generate sustainable income.

SUSTAINABILITY

The goal of the Production Center is to provide our producers with steady work on a sustainable basis. This is to ensure that their lives can shift from one of abject poverty to one of abundance. Our production capacity has been strengthened through consistent orders from our main customers including: One Way Cleaning Ltd. Kenya, Rio Hotel, Sky Africa Ltd., Collezoi Designers, Hope United Inc. USA, Focus Africa Canada, Global Mother Canada, Market Colors USA and many more. To further boost awareness of BOH, the Production Center also participates in various exhibition in and around Nairobi.

Our social development unit offers our producers access to affordable credit, known as the Savings and Internal Lending Community (SILC). This provides a platform for the vulnerable population to pool their money in a centralized fund from which members borrow startup capital and then pay with subsidized interest.
