Giving back to the community is an important pillar of Space and Style because this provides positive social value and fosters close community relationships.
Our brand is a caring and compassionate one and would like to make a great impact in the society. In our projects we strive to provide solutions that will better the community by creating opportunities in the building sector and beyond.
We focus on different pillars to help build the community:
☑ Community development initiatives: In Juja we observed that some of the Boda Boda riders drive around without reflector jackets, so we decided to distribute them in the Boda Boda community and we also put up wash stations that they can use.
☑ Education: The future of the building industry lies in the hands of the students who are currently doing building courses. That is why we have mentorship programmes.
☑ Building industry influencers: We carry out different capacity building forums that feature consultants and they do idea exchanging forums and programs like Fundi Maalum.
☑ Environment conservation: This planet is the only one we have and we care for it; that is why we carry out tree planting initiatives.
☑ Sports: Sports has a positive impact on the mental state of the youth and that is why we have taken the time to support Githurai All Stars.
Our CSR Activities
As a company we took the time to strategize on which CSR activities would have a great impact in the society and after carefully deliberating and planning we decided to align them with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), which are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.”
The SDGs were set up by the United Nations General Assembly and are intended to be achieved by the year 2030.
In 2012 we decided to introduce a skills training and development program that is called Fundi Maalum. This program was started so as to help artisans become more competent and disciplined by helping them develop their communication skills, improve their workmanship and work ethics.Read More

Trees benefit the people living around them by having a positive impact on their mental health and wellbeing by reducing stress because in most cases they encourage outdoor activity. That is why we decided to undertake tree planting as one of our CSR initiatives.Read More
Space and style is keen on impacting future generations through skills transfer and support. This forum was created so as to offer work tips and encourage final year students. This is done through mentorship where students visit a Space and Style showroom and the Juja factory in order to learn how the company works and how we manufacture our products.
The Covid-19 pandemic came and affected our society in a way that no one could have envisioned. This was a novel virus that spread globally and had adverse effects in people’s lives and the economies at large.Read More
