Masungula Foundation is a baby born out of two separate social enterprises - MASUNGULA KRAFTS and MONDRED Fashion school. We aim to reinforce a resilient community for economic empowerment and social enhancement among vulnerable families in Kibera slums through offering charitable vocational training and entrepreneurial skills.  The technical skills involve basic tailoring to produce artistic hand-made accessories from Africa’s readily available textiles (Maasai Shuka, Kanga & Kitenge). They also learn other related arts & crafts skill e.g. jewellery making, beadwork etc.

We have so far partnered with organizations like  The Action Foundation- http://theactionfoundationkenya.org, The  Turning Point Trust - https://tptrust.org among others who serve families living in Kibera slums. These organizations assist us to identify women and youth with a passion for arts and design for whom this programme will bring life-changing impact. They refer them to our programme and walk with us to ensure each one gets the most out of the programme. 

Both Janet + Monica (founders of the two separate social enterprises) have been involved in women's economic empowerment through fashion and design.  Monica is a seasoned tailor for at least three decades and has been running her fashion and design school. On the other hand, Janet founded Masungula Krafts over two years ago training women on a voluntary basis and enabling them to access markets.
