ABOUT US

Heavenly Treasures Kenya is a non-profit organization whose main aim is to support artisans who produce handicrafts through business coaching, personal development and spiritual nourishment.

Business Coaching

We realized that artisans are talented and for them to enhance their full capacity, they have to match their handy skills with their business skills. Heavenly Treasures provides an avenue where artisans are trained in product development, business management coaching, accounting, sample distribution marketing and networking forums.

 Personal Development

Every product represents a change of life!  We value the individual much more than the product. Heavenly Treasures provides guidance and counseling sessions to the artisans and their communities. We realize that many artisans go through life struggles by themselves. They do not have any outlet to discuss some of the issues. By providing a counselor who visits each group and also one-on-one meetings, we have realized drastic improvement in their workplace. Some topics trained this year are self-actualization, safety needs, and Esteem needs. This is a lifelong process that artisans get to access their skills and qualities, consider their aims in life and set goals in order to realize and maximize their potential.

Spiritual Nourishment

Heavenly Treasures spiritual development program is designed to meet the needs of the artisans concerning their personal growth and discipleship.  This need is met through two streams: Bible study classes designed by artisan Small Groups.  Each artisan group is trained given a devotional and trained on how to go about it. They mostly involve other community members on the basis of shared needs, similar interests or common activities. 

The second group is the Discipleship Group, whose primary objective is helping members grow spiritually through prayer, fellowship, and Bible study. The purpose of spiritual development is to “grow up” the people of God, through the study of God’s Word, prayer, fellowship, and ministry so that they may be better able to do what Christ told the church to do, “Make disciples of all men” .

Loving the People

Sometimes a simple home visit, a new pair of shoe or a food packet offered in God’s name is worth a thousand summons on love and compassion's.

"If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one"….  Mother Teresa

Heavenly Treasures committed to loving our artisans and develop their families and communities. Though a partnership with Heavenly Treasures US we are able to have short summer teams from the US who partner with us and the artisan communities in various capacities. Short term summer teams visit artisan homes and workshops and get a closer look at how we work with the artisans.

Guided Tours

Artisan home visits are the best way to get to know our artisans .80% of the artisans we work with are home based workers.When tourists visit Kenya, most of them will buy the traditional handicrafts from markets at the malls .Most of them do not understand that all the products are handcrafted. We pride ourselves in taking guided tours in both urban and rural Kenya for tourists to experience the whole process of creating products from raw materials. Meeting and interacting with the artisans is great way of tourists to learn our diverse culture. Sitting down in their homes and having a cup of tea while listening to their stories is always unforgettable experience. We arrange for guided tours for any individuals or groups that would like to experience the African hospitality and see the production process of handicrafts.
