Olive & Annie

Olive & Annie

About Our Artisan Partner


Olive & Annie empowers Maasai artisans in Kenya as they work toward financial independence. It is a branch of the charitable organization She Matters, a community of survivors and advocates united against sexual violence.

The name “Olive & Annie” was inspired by two young girls living at a local orphanage called ZLT Hope Homes; their mothers had unfortunately struggled with addiction following young pregnancies, poverty, and sexual assault. Many of the artisans working at Olive & Annie have had similar experiences. Through the group, these women have access to essential resources, including educational opportunities, community development workshops, and health programs.

Olive & Annie takes other comprehensive steps to oppose sexual violence, funding photography campaigns dedicated to the empowering survivors and helping guide She Matters in hiring a full-time social worker to provide professional counseling. With ZLT Hope Homes, Olive & Annie has funded rent expenses, provided more than 12,000 nutritious meals, and paid for 50 education scholarships and counting.
