At Manabaskets, we are passionate about empowering women and lifting up communities in Kenya.
Through our partnership with Manasprings Inc, an Australian charity that supports women who are grassroots community leaders in Kenya, we help to provide education, training, and resources to these women, empowering them to raise up their communities and create lasting change.
At Manasprings, their commitment is to provide a place where grassroots women leaders can gather to refresh body, mind, and spirit for re-energised service to their communities. They believe that women are the most influential force for change in the world, and that without these courageous and compassionate women, many vulnerable communities would be without food, shelter, care, education, health, and livelihoods.
Manasprings believes that women who work on the frontlines need time on the sidelines. Holistic women community leaders who work in inner city slums and remote rural areas need time for physical and psychological rest and for spiritual retreat. It is important for these women who serve the poor and marginalised to have the time and to be in a place where they can be reminded that God’s world has beauty, quiet, and peace, not just ugliness, poverty, and conflict. They also need a chance to learn from their lifetime experience of walking with the poor. They need time and the place to be able to sort out what has happened to them and to make sense of it. They need to figure out what more they need to know or be, and have the opportunity to learn or develop. (Myers, Walking. with the Poor).
We applaud the women within Kenya who simply find a way where others see no way, who give hope and purpose, and who uphold the dignity of all humanity.
At Manabaskets, we believe in the power of connection and community. That’s why we work closely with the women who create our baskets, forming meaningful relationships and supporting them every step of the way. It’s this collaboration that allows us to bring you truly one-of-a-kind products, made with skill and care.
We are grateful for the opportunity to support women artisans in Kenya, and to share their beautiful baskets with you.
Thank you for choosing Manabaskets and for joining us in our mission to empower women and uplift communities.
