About this Artisan
Mully Children’s Family
Mully Children’s Family (MCF) created Yatta Vocational Training Centre to restore young women broken by exploitation. Each year, the training center rescues approximately 100 victims out of this cruel bondage. When they arrive at the training center, these women receive counseling and learn vocational skills, computer training, and family care. They are also discipled in developing lives marked by eternal hope.
Young women like Felister Mwikali are taught beadwork, dress making, and design. Felister came to the center after being abused by a man who lured her out of her village with promises of a better life. However, he threw her out of his home when she became pregnant. Upon returning to her family, she was treated with disdain due to her pregnancy, and she was not allowed to attend school.
Because of the help of MCF’s training center, Felister has been able to save money and plans to start her own business.
Through their partnership with WorldCrafts, artisans at the training center earn a fair wage for creating beautiful handcrafted purses and jewelry. The crafter's dignity is being restored as they learn their own great worth.
