Our External Artisans

Playful or powerful, classic or colorful, you will find something for every taste and every pocket at the Nairobi Maasai Market.  A bazaar has grown from a few women selling their beaded wares to a world class craft market that offers a feast of fine pieces. True to its nomadic roots, the Maasai market is hosted in different locations each day of the week.

Over the years Amani has sought creative ways to support training for the marginalized women who come through her gate. Each vendor who supplies us with jewelry is a partner in this vision since each external product, as we call jewelry from the market, has become an additional revenue stream for Amani that ensures overhead is met without cost to the women. These pieces are sold in Amani shops, each accompanied with a partnership tag. “We are thankful for these great partnerships with vendors from Maasai Market and applaud them for their creativity”,  says Amani Country Director Joyce Muraya.

One of the fun things for our Amani Kenya Warehouse department is picking out unique jewelry pieces for Amani ya Juu.  Milli, who receives external products, has an eye for exceptional quality and uniqueness which guarantees that you will find, in the Amani Kenya shop and on website  amaniafrica.org,  great accessories for a day in the office, on safari or for an evening out.
