Kenya has a population of 44 million people, over 40% of which are living below the poverty line. Unemployment rates are high, especially amongst women and other marginalized groups. Consistent and fair-paying work is even harder to come by.
RoHo has partnered with four artisan groups across Kenya to create consistent, fair, well-paying work for artisans, most of whom are women.
Providing quality jobs to skilled artisans is key to supporting community development. A job for these artisans means more than just a paycheck—it creates opportunities and stability in a household, supporting not just the artisans but their families as well.
Recently, the Sustainable Development Solutions Network recognized RoHo as one of 50 global youth-led solutions advancing the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in their Youth Solutions Report.
Highlighted as an innovative leader, RoHo is committed to creating social change through ethical fashion and focusing on the quality of products, ethical work and economic empowerment to achieve the SDGs like ending poverty and ensuring responsible consumption and production.
