Andrew - Apron
Andrew arrived in Kenya in 1997. He had some craftsmanship knowledge, but in the struggle to survive he deep dived in this field. He shares that "By loving what we do, we learn a lot. When I see a happy customer, and their appreciation, it motivates me." Andrew started supplying to Mikono in 1994, and since then craftsmanship helps him pay for rent, food for his family, and his children's education. He wishes to send a message to other refugees: "There is no such thing as a foolish job."
Currently, the Mikono Shop is co-producing aprons with Andrew, iteratively creating this beautiful products with him.
