Assante Beads

Asante Beads

The paper beads in this jewelry were made by women living with HIV in one of Africa’s largest slums, Kibera, Kenya. While living in Kenya, I helped a group of improvished women start a business making beads and jewelry, called Asante Beads. The group of 9 women in the project, are now running their own business, are able to get medicine and food they need, and can afford to send their children to school. Our goal is for this to be a source of sustainable income for the women involved. They are selling their creations at a local market in Nairobi and I am selling them here in the US. Your contribution to their livelihood means more than you know.
