Kinamama Kitchen: Jam Making Enterprise (Zanzibar)

15 villages have come together to form a self help federation Kinamama – Women Together – with the aim of working together to have a chance to make their dream of real jobs and a proper income a reality. They have currently gone on training and actively use sustainable methods (rocket stoves/ solar cookers) to make jam, preserves and dried fruit from the seasonal fruit spices that grow on the tropical island.

The project has already had success with many of the hotels on the island making large orders after their cooks, who have tasted the home-made jam, commented on how great they tasted! In light of their success, the local government has given the project land to build a purpose made unit to house their food production activities.
