This group of talented women from kitui has recently undergone intensive training in the art of weaving, honing their skills to create stunning pieces that embody both tradition and innovation.
Kyalo kya Maendeeo CBO was founded last year by Augustus Kyalo Muli, a former Speaker aspirant and Dubai based businessman.The aim of the CBO is to empower the local community and has so far supported initiatives such as tree planting and sponsorship of football teams.
Their biggest achievement was Kitui cultural festival held last year and the now famous basket weaving project which has seen hundreds of women benefit from training on new techniques and ready markets abroad for their products.
It’s very clear that Kyalo kya Maendeeo is definitely taking the community far and it’s hoped that more leaders can emulate Kyalo Muli to help empower our community. Their intricate designs and use of vibrant colors not only reflect the rich cultural heritage of the region but also demonstrate their creative prowess and dedication to preserving this ancient craft.
The Nairobi Trade Fair show which will be held on 25th September 2023 will be an exciting opportunity for Kyalo Kya Maendee Group to present their masterpieces to a wider audience and receive recognition for their hard work and talent, the TCD Digital reports.
