Hope Designers

Women are frequently the worst affected when it comes to unemployment, poverty, and the effects of HIV/AIDS. Hope Designers is a social enterprise supported by Kar Geno that provides training and employment to vulnerable, HIV positive mothers in Kisumu, west Kenya. The project seeks to end the stigma associated with HIV by demonstrating that HIV positive mothers are resilient, industrious and capable. We are expanding the project so that more vulnerable women can be involved in the project and experience the benefits of training and economic empowerment. The expansion includes strategies to make the workshop safer and more sustainable.
