From rags to riches: Re-afric make colourful shoes from recycled African fabric that sell worldwide – The East Africa Business Podcast

From rags to riches: Re-afric make colourful shoes from recycled African fabric that sell worldwide – The East Africa Business Podcast | @Newslink Kusuntu Partners | Scoop.it
Overview This week’s episode comes from Kibera, Kenya’s biggest, and one of Africa’s largest, informal settlements. Life is tough here, and many talk about the “slum mentality” where a lack of opportunities leads to drug abuse, crime and a general sense of despair. Julius Otieno is an inspiration for those in his neighbourhood. After dropping out of high school as his family could no longer pay his school fees he combined the talents of his mother (a tailor) and his father (a cobbler) to make colourful, hand-made shoes from discarded pieces of African fabric. The shoes are a hit, with both Kibera residents and expatriates (such as myself). Julius and I talk about his story, how the shoes are made, and the impact of the business in reducing environmental waste and providing meaningful employment to the Kibera youth. We also discuss Julius’ trip to Paris, after he was selected by an ambassador to present at a trade show there. This involved Julius needing to get funding to get a passport in order to leave the country, let alone have his experience on a plane. For more information on the business, head to the show notes where you can find the Re-afric website, as well as a blog post I wrote several months ago about meeting Julius for the first time. You can also head to www.theeastafricabusinesspodcast.com where you can learn about opportunities to help companies like Julius’, whether that be expertise or funding, should you so wish.
