Everlyn is from Meru, Kenya. When GORP met Everlyn, she already had great talent with making beaded purses that are a popular design in Kenya. Everlyn learned how to knit from Muthoni, another GORP artisan. She quickly learned how to create the functional and fun coffee sleeves in our online store. Everlyn works with our wholesaler, Grain of Rice Project, a non-profit organization that empowers Kenyans through education and training initiatives. Currently, they are based in Kibera slum, which is the largest slum in East Africa. Recent estimates show that over 235,000 people live in the single square mile area that makes up Kibera. Life in Kibera is challenging. People live in simple shacks made of sticks, mud, and tin. There is no running water. Sewage runs rampant and many people survive on less than $1 a day. But Grain of Rice Project works to provide opportunities to people in Kibera to help them overcome some of their hardships. Although they cannot change all of Kibera, they strive to do small things to empower people that will add up to make a big difference in their lives and will in turn spill over and make a difference in the lives of others around them.  Their current focus is on building a school in rural Kenya to expand our reach through education.
