Our people are passionate about Kenana Knitters, we are a family that is made up of friends, 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 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.
Paddy Nightingale, Our Founder
Paddy founded Kenana Knitters to provide the women in the area with a sustainable income, since then the organisation has grown by leaps and bounds, but Paddy can still be found in her office.. dedicated to the ladies, and to designing more of the perfect creations we have today
Head of Production
Kenana has been very good to me, my immediate and extended family. 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.
