Why this product matters

Trinity Jewellery is a small business that was started in April 1984 by 3 young members from Mathare Valley, one of the oldest and largest slums in Nairobi, Kenya. The founders had gone through a jewellery-making training program with the National Council of Churches of Kenya (NCCK). The objective of Trinity was to create opportunities for people in the slums to earn a decent living. This is especially important for the youths, who often otherwise turn to crime and/or substance abuse. The artisans at Trinity are employed and trained on the job. Other local producer partners find great hope in Trinity. Trinity orders raw materials from them using the 50% advance payment that their fair trade buyers provide. This helps them with production cost, and then the buyers pay the other 50% after the goods are delivered.
