About Nani's Kitengela Glass

Nani Croze has been sharing her neverending stream of artistic consciousness and conservation ethics in Kenya for decades. It all manifests itself on the property of "Kitengela Glass Research and Training Trust."  If you have been here, dear friends, then you KNOW.

Countless writers have penned stories about this magical art environment.   Go ahead and type "Nani Croze Kitengela Glass" in google and you will see for yourself.

So why this Patreon Site?
After several falls, hip surgeries, cracked ribs, and a long life of giving her all from sun-up to sundown, she isn't exactly able to keep this place going as it was.  When her dear husband Eric passed away last year, things became just a little bit too difficult.  She can't personally climb scaffolds to build murals for big-dollar clients anymore.  She can't run around and keep the farm and cottages and private parties and educational spaces running by sheer force of her mighty will.  Nani is entering a new phase of life.  A good one.  But a bit of a hard one.  She needs financial help.  

The acres of the forest she planted, the studio, and the farm need outside income that Nani can't generate herself.  

SEE EXTENDED FULL VIDEO BELOW

Her studio is bubbling with new creations, her animals are romping around free, her guesthouses are often filled with travelers who have come to see her creations. People come here to live among the recycled art and breathe the wilderness air at the edge of the Nairobi National Part. The experience is immersive and always changing - but it is at risk.

A friend asked one of the staff a few months ago after her beloved Eric passed away, "Can you help this place thrive for Nani, instead of merely being "cold comfort" that it is now?"  It's not too late!  We can!

But we need your help.

Nani's Kitengela Glass still has the energy that Nani brings - but she's always poured private resources (as did her late husband) into keeping the Research and Training Trust working.  As of summer of 2021 that is no longer a possible working model.

Nani needs some basic necessities paid for so that her team can continue to offer mosaic classes, inexpensive school visits for children to learn about recycling, low cost treks across the hanging bridge and a place where our Kenyan population can see art and conservation IN ACTION!

With your monthly commitment we will post messages from Nani from here in Kenya, and videos of all the fun projects we are running.

Signed,

Darren, Rehema, Nelson (and Nani!)
