Featured Artisans for 2013 Happy Feet African Sandals
Happy Feet African Sandals is a company that we helped establish back in 2012. This company is located in Kibera, which is an informal slum dwelling in Nairobi, Kenya. Happy Feet is comprised of 10 employees: Rosemary, Alice, Tabitha, Millicent, Monique, Sharon, Erick, David Michael and Kevin. Although Happy Feet is not the sole income for the employees it is a major source for them. All the artisans enjoy there craft and take great care and pride in their work. They hope to grow big enough to become a supplier to shops in the United States and Europe.
Their Goal: To raise enough money through Happy Feet African Sandals to support their families.
