Bombolulu’s disabled workshops employ 160 people from all over Kenya.
They are members of WFTO (World Fair Trade Organisation).
Founded in 1969 as a rehabilitation centre, they were largely supported by the Association for the Physically Disabled of Kenya. Now, they are working towards social and financial independence. They deserve to earn a decent living from their wonderful skills.
Bombolulu's workshop makes wheelchairs and other aids for those who need them.
Most of Bombolulu’s workers have sheltered housing on site. There is a nursery for the workers’ children and a big playing field which the older kids use for football.
It is estimated that approximately 100,000 Kenyans with a disability require either a wheel chair or a tricycle to enable them to fully participate in family and community life, to attend to school, to reach places of work or run their own businesses.
They have a beautifully designed shop in stone, wood and grass, and similarly designed restaurant and cultural centre. Here visitors can eat, listen to music, watch traditional dance, and join in too. You can visit traditional bomas or houses from some of Kenya's 42 different ethnic groups.
