Tabaka is the main source of soapstone in Kenya. Smolart and Afrikiko are among the groups that enjoy a great share of the revenues that are generated from the business. Tabaka is located about 24 Kilometre from Kisii town. One of the most known organizations in Tabaka is Tabaka mission hospital.

Soapstone carving has been the main pillar of Tabaka’s economy for generations.  It has created employment for hundreds of young people in Tabaka.   One of the co-operative that was created to process the soapstone is Kisii soapstone co-operative which later collapsed.
