AKF is changing lives by creating jobs, training young people entering the job market, and guiding people starting new businesses.

One of the people benefiting from AKF’s work support is Maisaa, who despite physical challenges, used sheer determination and an AKF grant to create a thriving business.Today, she uses her sewing talents to transform old clothes into fashionable, low-cost outfits for children. Her innovative approach to sustainable clothing not only creates an income but also fills a need for her community.
