MEET THE ARTISANS
Established in 2005 under the social enterprise wing of the Academic Model for Providing Access to Healthcare (AMPATH). AMPATH was created in response to the challenge of providing life-saving care in the face of the HIV pandemic in Kenya. AMPATH now treats over 60,000 HIV-positive persons, with almost 2,000 new patients being enrolled each month at over 500 clinical sites throughout western Kenya.
Imani Workshops is a fair trade, social enterprise created to provide hope and sustainable income opportunities for HIV+ and disabled persons. Along with medical services provided by AMPATH, Imani artisans are provided skills training and employment opportunities that give them an avenue to rebuild their lives economically and socially.
One hundred percent (100%) of the income earned through sales is reinvested in the workshop through which artisans benefit from employment, skills training and other forms of empowerment. Imani Workshops is a member of the Fair Trade Federation, an association of fair trade wholesalers, retailers and producers whose members are committed to providing fair wages and good employment opportunities to economically disadvantaged artisans and farmers worldwide.
