Social Enterprise Growth

Phew! It’s been a wild few months for Umoja’s Social Enterprise programme. From just Evaline working part time, our team now had four full-time staff. We’re employing three Umoja graduates – Upendo, Beatrice, and Evaline, as well as Mama Happy. The team is making Days for Girls Sanitary kits, a low-cost solution for girls to manage their periods and stay in school. Just this month we completed our first major order for the Endulen Maasai Women’s Health Project, and our team was working around the clock and through the holidays to make 200 kits for the Endulen Maasai community. The order is a big turning point for Social Enterprise as it is our first big “sale,” and the first time Umoja has made money through business rather than donations. We’re really excited for the future of Social Enterprise which is employing our graduates, making Umoja more sustainable, and making a difference to girls education all at once.
