Women from the Kibera slum crafting designs and earning a living.

About

We need greeting card design for an economic empowerment project helping women living in the Kibera Slum. Kipepeo Designs is a micro-finance project in Nairobi Kenya, which gives women from disadvantaged backgrounds a regular income, skills and opportunities to plan for the future. The project is built on the principle of 'trade, not aid'. Kipepeo's aim is not to give money to people living in extreme poverty, but to give them means to rise above it.

There are sales programs established in the UK, Australia, and recently a program started in America. The Christmas cards are big sellers in the USA, but there are several opportunities here which have no card designs from Kipepeo.

  • Graduation Cards
  • Valentines Cards
  • Mothers day (American version)
  • .... and identify what else are we missing ....

Increasing the market for these cards allows more women to earn a good wage and to give their children the education, medical aid, and nutrition they need.
