Jacaranda Workshop

Jacaranda Workshop

The Jacaranda Workshop is a non-profit organization that offers training and employment to developmentally delayed graduates of the Jacaranda Special School in Nairobi. In addition to employment, Jacaranda Workshop provides artisans with financial assistance for housing and bus fares, lunches on site, salary supplements for artisans with severe disabilities, and medical assistance to artisans from very poor backgrounds. To date, the workshop has trained and employed over 70 graduates to create beautiful fashion jewellery using locally available resources such as clay, seeds, bone and brass. Besides earning a sustainable living, Jacaranda employees gain self-confidence and social skills in a nurturing environment.
