The Global Bag Project

Tell us more about your ministry to empower African women.

Before I started my studies at NEGST, I had been involved in ministry among women, both inside and outside NEGST. During the 1st quarter of 2009, I was involved in linking up North American women with African women in empowerment projects in the slums. This opened my eyes in to the critical need for putting women together for profitable micro enterprises. I have learned that there is great synergy when women work together. Half way through my studies Sept 2009, Global Bag Project invited me to head their project in Kenya. In my role as the Kenyan project manager, I am charged with coordinating, mobilizing and facilitating training of women in micro business ventures. Currently we are involved in sewing beautiful and useful bags for the ever-expanding environmentally-conscious American market. Our cutting edge is that we empower needy women while contributing to saving the environment through provision of recyclable shopping bags.
