Matumaini means “Optimism” in Swahili.
Hope. Creativity. Empowerment. Financial freedom. This is what the paper outfit represents.
Each small but mighty paper outfit is a training tool made out of Kenyan corn maize flour bags. The paper outfit remains unique because, although modeled after a school uniform, each outfit is one-of-a-kind and handcrafted by her.
Within the folds of every single outfit holds the story of a village girl who wants to create change in her future, and contribute to her community.
Create, embellish, and frame the this paper outfit; a training tool transformed into a piece of art by humble, steady hands.
