Street Hope began as a group of women from Mathare slum who had lived on the street for their entire lives. After working with Mercy House Global to learn the art of hand-stitching, the women of Street Hope are growing in their skills and confidence, providing food and education for their children, learning to read, overcoming addiction, and moving into their own homes.
More about the artisan: Zaituna
In 2018, a 26-year-old Muslim mother from Uganda went to Kenya in hope of opportunities. The loss of both her parents and having no other person to turn to forced her to cross the border in search of a means of survival. She has two young children whose fathers abandoned them.
In order to survive, Zaituna would go around to the estates neighboring Mathare looking for menial jobs like washing clothes. Sometimes she would beg from motorists. She finally managed to secure a job with Street Hope through a friend who also works there. With her first salary, Zaituna rented a house where she currently lives with her kids. She is excited and grateful to God that she is able to earn a steady income which ensures that she and her children no longer spend cold nights in the streets and do not go to bed hungry.
