Miss Eastlands Social Entrepreneurship is all about making a positive impact. By working with pioneers and pathfinders who use their business as a way to make everyday life betterfor those who need it most, we strive towards a more equal and inclusive society.
There are millions of people in slums and informal settlements of Nairobi’s Eastlands whose lives are a constant struggle to provide for themselves and their families. By backing and working with social entrepreneurs, we create new opportunities and contribute to better everyday lives around Eastlands.
Together with dedicated partners and experienced Miss Eastlands Organization’s co-workers, we develop programmes, products and services to scale up social entrepreneurs' businesses and increase their impact.
We team up with donors, corporates, business, individuals and like-minded stakeholders as well as community-based organizations to support established social entrepreneurs to increase their impact.
We collaborate with social entrepreneurs to produce unique items and develop services for Miss Eastlands Organization – that way we contribute to creating jobs for those who need it the most.Explore Our Partnerships
