The LIFE Line started in 2008 with a small group of mothers in Kenya, shunned by society because they had children with special needs. Teaching these women to sew allowed them to earn an income for their families, send their children to school and grow from quiet outcasts to leaders of change. What started with a canvas tote bag ended up transforming an entire community.
The LIFE Line has grown to employ over 400 women in communities across the Rift Valley in Kenya. Providing competitive wages and sourcing materials locally, the LIFE Line is a fashionable step toward alleviating poverty.
