Maisha Collective by Heshima Kenya

Refugee women and girls in the Maisha Collective design and create each of the scarves in our collection. When these women leave the security of our safe house, they are not just safe, but also educated and self-sufficient. Your scarf purchase contributes directly to the wages of each woman—100% of scarf proceeds are reinvested into the women and girls in Heshima Kenya’s safe house in Nairobi, where the money is divided evenly and distributed as a monthly stipend. Each scarf comes with a tag depicting the woman that created your scarf and where she is originally from in Africa.

Heshima Kenya is a unique nonprofit organization that through a holistic approach provides shelter, education, vocational training, case management support, and advocacy to participants and their children who have experienced the detrimental effects of war, the loss of their families, and, in many cases, kidnapping, rape, trafficking, unlawful detainment, and torture. Here, they have the opportunity to participate in our trade program, The Maisha Collective. Refugee women and girls in the Maisha Collective design and create each of the scarves you see here. The women and girls in the safe house are creating these hand-dyed scarves as a means to financially support themselves so when they leave the security of our safe house, they are not just safe, they are educated and self-sufficient.

Maisha Collective scarves are hand-dyed using a traditional African dyeing technique called resist dyeing. Because every scarf is hand-made and one-of-a-kind, the pattern or color may vary slightly from the photo. Each scarf comes with a tag depicting the woman that created your scarf, and where she is originally from in Africa.

Your scarf purchase contributes directly to the wages of each woman—100% of scarf proceeds are reinvested into the women and girls in Heshima Kenya’s safe house in Nairobi, where the money is divided evenly and distributed as a monthly stipend. Most importantly, your purchase inspires each woman’s journey to become Ambassadors who support, empower, and ultimately protect other refugee women. Truly, every scarf tells a story.
