Zena products are handcrafted by female entrepreneurs in Kamuli, Uganda who were previously living below the poverty line.
Through short term apprenticeships creating our products, the Zena women earn a living wage to support themselves and their families above the poverty line, access business education AND save monthly towards the start-up capital they need to start their businesses.
We named this brand after our pet goat. We named our goat after the word dance (zena) in Luganda, the local language spoken at our HQ in Kamuli, Uganda. Zena the goat loves pineapple, has an affinity for crop tops, and knows a few special party tricks... #zenathegoat, she's just like us.
What is The Zena Launch Pad?
To keep communications clear, we call our product line The Zena Brand and our social impact The Zena Launch Pad.
⭐️ Both are in house, both are fully nonprofit, and both are founded on the same core beliefs and values. ⭐️
