The Sustainable for Life Project is changing how we manufacture goods by creating a sustainable model that benefits everyone. With the help of Dr. Debra Akre of Tembo Trading, a non-profit whose aim is to educate and transform the lives of Kenya children and their communities, we’re bringing small manufacturing to remote areas with previously no or little industry.
This program employs women with HIV and AIDS and women who live in rural villages. In order to create sustainable work for them, Marko Taylor Handbags has decided to have its Fall Collection of leather goods produced by these women. Tembo Trading will teach and provide them with the appropriate tools.
From July 25th through August 8th, we travel to Ngong, Kenya for the final installation of Sustainable for Life Project. Following in late 2015 will be the release of our own documentary feature film, produced by the Movement known as Priceless, capturing the journeys of our teams through Kenya, revealing the powerful story and immense impact this project is having upon these women, their families and villages, and the reimagining of building hope and empowerment on a global scale.
