Read the stories behind the ladies and how the beading is done.
By purchasing one of our pieces of beadwork you support:
❥ A woman in a remote, dry rural part of south-east Kenya where there are very few ways to make a living. Beading means a vital income for her (and for all the 1500 women in the women groups that Hadithi now supports). The money goes a long way, especially in the dry season, when food gets scarce. Beading provides her with some financial stability, money to pay school fees and buy food.
❥ The conservation of a threatened forest and it's wildlife. When harvests fail, people turn to other ways to provide an income for the family. It is not uncommon in Tsavo that people turn to cutting trees to turn them into charcoal, or poaching wildlife in the area. An income for beading is the alternative we can offer.
❥ And of course, to keep the beautiful ancient tradition of Maasai beading part of the present and the future!
