Trinity Jewelry Crafts is a small jewelry-making business located in Kariobangi, one of the more impoverished areas of Nairobi s. Joseph Muchina, the director of Trinity, grew up in a Nairobi slum, which gave him a strong desire to find a way to reduce poverty. With two other founding members of Trinity, he was trained by the National Christian Council of Kenya in jewelry making and they started a small business to employ others in need. In addition to their monthly income, the 7 men and 5 women jewelry makers who work at Trinity all participate in a profit-sharing plan and 10% of their earnings are set aside each month in a pension plan. Joseph says that when they have orders, for the artisan, it means guaranteed food on their table, shelter for those who pay rent, clothing for their families, and most importantly, educational needs for their children. Jewelry from Trinity is handmade, with hammered elements, beads from local family bead producers, and traditional African beads.
