The Marleen Project is an income-generating activity of L’Arche Kenya. The project consists of 2 production workshops where persons coming from vulnerable groups are trained to become professional artisans. Through the training, they gain skills in leatherworks or woodcarving that enable them to derive an income.
In addition, the products made by people with intellectual disabilities during their occupational therapy are also sold in the Marleen Crafts Shop together with an assortment of other African artefacts. The profit generated by the sales of the items supports activities of L’Arche Kenya.
The attractive shop is located in the centre of Nyahururu.
In 2002 a young Dutch volunteer, Marleen Bannink, was volunteering at St. Martin CSA. At the same time that Marleen Crafts was founded, she tragically passed away in a car accident. The project was thus named in her hour honour and memory.
