Trinity Jewellery is a small business located on the edge of the Dandora slums, one of the poorest sections of Nairobi and home to thousands of Kenyans. Joseph Muchina, the director, and the other two founding members of Trinity grew up in the neighbourhood. Like most slum children, Joseph had no father and was unable to go to school. His life was changed when he and his friends were educated and trained in jewellery creation at a handicraft project. A private entrepreneur, Muchina helps others from the slums by providing employment opportunities. He does the design work, finding his inspiration in traditional African jewellery. He believes that economic opportunity, rather than handouts from government or charities, is the most effective way to address poverty.
