Who Runs Requiem Kenya?
My name is Xavier Mpanga and I run Requiem Kenya. I started Requiem Kenya in June 2016. I started this company because I believe everyone has something to offer through our experiences in supporting others and all we need is the platform to do so, which Requiem is offering.
In my business, I make crafts and buy Shea nuts for butter. I picked these products because they are readily available and accessible, but our people are ignorant of their importance. My products are special because they are handmade and natural. It is also unique because the proceeds empower people in the slums and villages to do more.
I started craft work and training farmers in 2017. I discovered my craft through learning to survive in slums. I didn’t really start practicing until other craftsmen liked the idea of coming together to do crafts as a group. It took me a year to learn and perfect my craft. I draw a lot of enjoyment from practicing my craft, especially when I see that it benefit many other people in the art and craft industry.
I can be reached through my email firstname.lastname@example.org at any time, whether it’s a question, comment, or order. Please allow a little time for a response, since I personally reply to all my correspondence.
