Beacon of Hope (BOH) is moving forward with its weaving program. They just fulfilled a large orders for rugs from 10Thousand Villages and have fulfilled smaller orders for overseas buyers. The rugs are quite refreshing in their individuality. Janet, pictured with some practice pieces from some of her ten students, is to be commended for insistence on quality pieces. David continues to challenge his 10 students in kikoy weaving with new weave structures. His weavers weave acrylic “rag” rugs, scarves, placemats and kikoys. Lydia trains 15 women in tailoring, a skill much needed in Kenya. For their shop, the women make  bags, napkins, clothing, pillows and other household items. The teaching staff supervises production as well as a classroom. Beacon of Hope now has a beading section, a basketry section, and a card making section in addition to the tailoring and weaving groups.

Jane Wathome, the director is very focused and inspired, as well as a good business woman.  She is committed to lifting up others and sharing her vision.
