Had a very interesting tour at this workshop, a wide variety of souvenirs available produced by disabled people, By visiting and buying articles you are supporting those people with honest work.

Great center to visit especially because most of the people are disabled. Look how they make jewelery. Visit the great performances of the teams, look at the different houses who you can see at this center. Buy some gifts to support the center they are cheap and nice

Bombolulu Workshop is your one-stop local handicraft and cultural centre at Mombasa. The community contributing greatly to this project is the Handicapped of Kenya society that do an amazing job of craft, cuisine and cultural dances that leave you asking for more. Disability is not inability !

Few workers on site and almost no crafts. Apparently a large craft shop burnt to the ground and so there was very little to see. I appreciate how they are helping people.
