Artisan Profile


Josephine has been involved in our artisan program for two years. She was taught the skills of jewelry making and has beautifully made many of our bracelets and necklaces. She also recently crafted together our Candy Cane Ornaments. She is very grateful for the opportunity to train and work as an artisan with Grain of Rice Project as it has helped her pay her kids school fees and has improved her standard of living. Her son became a student at our school, Grain of Rice Academy in May and she’s seen significant improvement in his education. She hopes to one day start her own business. She believes her move to Nanyuki has been positive as she feels this community to be a safe and healthy environment for her family.
