Welcome

Here is your chance! Tuko Pamoja supports over 150 compromised women in Kenya. We purchase their beautiful crafts, bring the items to America and offer them for purchase by YOU! When you purchase an item, you enable women in Kenya to provide food, safe housing and education for their children. Won’t you join us as we link hands with our sisters in Kenya to make a difference in their lives and yours? Tuko Pamoja ~ We Are Together!

 

quote

 

Sister Mary Owens, Executive Director of all Nyumbani programs states, “Being present at the Tuko Pamoja launch helped me to broaden my understanding of this great project. When I entered your home that Sunday, I was in awe at the magnificent display- of the inventory so beautifully presented. The speech at the beginning and end captured, very meaningfully, the spirit of Tuko Pamoja.”
