Risks and challenges

Our main challenge going forward will be scaling our shoe production. Scaling production for these handmade shoes will always be a challenge but something we have been preparing for diligently over the last 4 months. This is likely to be one of the biggest orders our workshop is yet to fulfil and we therefore expect this to be demanding.

We are currently working with skilled artisans from the local community to prepare them for campaign fulfilment and make them a part of the Kitu Kali family.

Everything we do will be done to ensure this is done in a sustainable and ethical manner to improve the livelihoods of these incredible people and make a change in the local community.

We're sure we'll encounter a few more challenges as our crowdfunding campaign progresses but we're excited to overcome these and we'll always be sure to be open and honest with our backers throughout.

We're really excited to grow Kitu Kali with Kickstarter and we can't thank you enough for your support!
