Our SHOFCO Women’s Empowerment Project (SWEP) provides business training, support and additional income for women living with HIV in Kibera and Mathare​. Our SWEP members create beautiful handmade goods – from beaded bracelets to colorful yoga bags and more. Through the sale of these unique goods, our SWEP members are able to not just earn income, but to build a community of support and sisterhood with women going through similar experiences.

In 2016, the SWEP launched an Etsy store to sell their goods and help them continue their work. You can access it here! In 2023, SWEP supported 9,963 women in tailoring, handicrafts, and soft skills training to support their economic empowerment.
