Where you’ll go
Go through a day with the non-profit association Zawadisha and see a side of Nairobi you never expected! Stroll around a neighborhood market, enjoy lunch with a local family, and meet nearby female business visionaries who have gotten advances from Zawadisha.
What you’ll see
Zawadisha is a noble association whose mission is to furnish small loans to women in Kenya. On this Nairobi tour, you’ll get the chance to meet an individual from the association, alongside the ladies who have been aided through Zawadisha’s endeavors.
After meeting your guide, we’ll head to Kayole to a market and are welcomed by Cecilia, a long-term inhabitant. She’ll take you on a two-hour journey through the business sector, stopping at booths that offer everything from products of the land to attire. You’ll also get the opportunity to meet a couple of local women who had loans from Zawadisha to begin and develop their businesses.
Then we’ll head to Cecilia’s home for lunch, where we’ll share a hand crafted supper of pilau and stew with her and family. After lunch, Cecilia will show you how to make chapati, a Kenyan staple that is like a tortilla or naan.
We’ll then head back to the focal point of Nairobi. There, we’ll unwind with an icy Tusker lager or Stoney pop with a bird’s-eye view of the downtown area — presenting a lot more to discover while you’re around the area.
