Philip and Katy Leakey founded The Leakey Collection to create work opportunity in the rural areas of Kenya.
This business has provided work opportunity to over 1400 Maasai women in Kenya.
Founders, Philip and Katy Leakey are considered experts in this area by the International Trade Centre/United Nations and spoke at ITC sponsored World Export Development Forum - 2008 in Geneva on the subject.
The Leakeys, while living and working among the Maasai, have witnessed the successful growth of communities when these communities have participated in the structure, development and implementation of programs that address; health, education, rural enterprise and development.
The Leakey Collection will donate $2.00 from each sale to the non-profit T.R.A.D.E.
