Women's Handicraft Workshop & Permaculture Center

The Mkonoo Women's Network have been creating traditional Maasai beaded jewellery and leather bags in their village for years. The beaded jewellery has been for sale in the village and at the local market. Proceeds go to support the women's daily lives in the village. Maasai Leather Bags have been for sale in the United States and Canada since 2015.

Terrawatu is now planning to build a workshop for the women of Mkonoo. This will enable the women to properly store materials and work in a more sanitary environment. The workshop and adjacent office space will serve as the headquarters for the permaculture demonstration farm and coordination facility for Terrawatu's projects in the community.
