Anne Mukuria is a Kenyan woman, coming from a community where people  weave most of their  lives to support the little income they  get from our agricultural activities. She  grew up seeing her  grandmother weaving.

That is the reason why she  took up the opportunity to market the most common activity of her  community, weaving, and created the community-based group, Wengo, gathering around 30 women.

Through inter-tribal marriages, these women  learn and share the  craft of weaving among themselves, as different tribes and communities have different and unique styles of weaving. Through these learning experiences, Anne  managed to forge a unique team of women who strive to make a difference in their lives and families through weaving.
