Merry-Go-Strong (MGS) is a non-profit organization that works in partnership with communities in Kenya, by supporting women and children to expand their craft, minds, and resources.
Our mission is to nurture sustainable grassroots development with our community partners by collaboratively innovating solutions to locally defined challenges of social and economic well-being.
"Because thriving women and girls means healthy, happy homes."
"By building strong partnerships"
MGS works with our community-based partner, The Tharaka Women's Welfare Program (TWWP) in Kenya to help find income-generating projects for women who are in adult literacy groups and have not sent their daughters through FGM.
"Supporting traditional craft"
MGS helps women who are interested in making baskets by providing them with yarn, needles, and encouraging creative freedom. We buy the baskets directly from the women and sell them online and at pop-up shops.
