Happy International Women’s Day, Kenya!

Here at TVE, we are so happy to be celebrating International Women’s Day with our partners in Kenya! We’d like to shine a spotlight on the second group of the day, Live Long Self-Help Women’s Group from Mbita, Kenya!

These remarkable women are working to transform their community, one project at a time. They started off having little or no business experience, but now the women of the Live Long Self Help Group are managing a variety of small businesses. Utilizing sewing machines donated by the TVE community, the LLSH Group operates a tailoring shop that services the local community. The group also runs a party rental business, renting tables, chairs and tents for celebrations and community events — a unique idea that is working brilliantly! Additionally, the group tends to organic gardens and orchards that provide nutritious food to their community. Through all of these ventures, the women of Live Long Self Help raise enough income to support themselves … and 60 orphans in the community! We are so proud to be working along side this amazing group.
