Beading for Education

The Maasai women who founded Twala Cultural Manyatta make beautiful beaded bracelets to enhance their income and support girls to complete their education.

The bracelets are being sold in middle schools in Michigan to raise funds to build the Girls’ Boarding Block at Il Polei Secondary School. This education helps girls avoid early marriage and even allows girls to return to school after they are pregnant. These young mothers have become the stars of their classes earning A’s and A+ in their exams!

Beading for Conservation

Review text here & Here.  Seems like these bracelets go towards education as well! The Olkiramatian Reto Women’s Group, who run the Lale'enok Resource Centre, enhance their income and support conservation efforts through their expert beadwork.

Their bracelets are bought and sold by the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Gardens for their Lions & Livelihoods project. All profits are then returned to SORALO’s projects.
