The Maasai Women: Day 3 in Kenya
Founder Trip: A word from Kirsten
It was a magical day meeting the Maasai women in our newest partnership in Kenya.
The whole community welcomed us with traditional song and dance which brought me to tears. After formal greetings, we spent the day together learning about their culture and working on designs. We partner with the Esetiti Community and Primary School because they are dedicated to educating girls, stopping FGM, and empowering Maasai women in this region. Shauna, our American contact, and James, our Maasai leader contact, have made it possible for Raven + Lily to come alongside this amazing group of people. Shauna has a long term dedication to these women and after 2 years of development, I was thrilled to see our efforts finally come to fruition. We will be launching this collection in spring 2014, so stay tuned for details on how you can be part of making this new partnership successful!
