Asante Sana, Swahili for “Thank you very much” is a partnership of hope with HIV/AIDS women’s groups in the slums of Nairobi. We are a for profit business that is focused on building a market for the hand made goods produced by those trying to "live positively".

Our organisation offers a one-to-one connection between the women in Nairobi and women throughout the United States. We believe this partnership will continue the effort in helping to restore the dignity, to these women, which has been lost due to conflict and marginalisation.

In addition to partnering with the women groups in Nairobi, we have chosen to reinvest 80% of the proceeds into assisting Child Headed Households in Ethiopia and efforts to end the use of women as weapons of war in the DR Congo.
