Our people are passionate about Kenana Knitters, we are a family that is made up of friend, neighbors and relatives. There are numerous threads that connect our knitters to each other and we all love being part of the team.


Kenana Knitters is empowering women in the local community by directly providing them with a source of income.

Kenana Knitters provides not only a fair wage but also, regular steady employment. We have created a space where the women are able to take charge of their own lives and build a brighter future for themselves and their families. We ensure that our knitters are treated with respect and dignity. 

So many of us have come to Kenana when we were completely desperate, we had reached a point where we didn't know where to go to find help. I was very lucky,  Paddy helped me and my child, and then she gave me a job.

I really thank Kenana for the support and for uplifting the local women. If it was not for the knitters many of us would be sitting idle at home.


Nancy Nyambura

As the oldest sibling;  after the death of my parents a lot of responsibilities  fell on me. I have been able to support my brothers and sisters through my work at Kenana and they are now all independent with families of their own.
