Kazuri Beads

Crafts, beads, pretty colorful things are right up my alley especially if they are for a good cause, so of course I was so excited to join Marielle (fellow PCV) and her mom on the tour of Kazuri Beads.

Kazuri Beads has an awesome story, it was started as an income generating activity teaching women in villages around Nairobi to make ceramic beads. Creating an industry and connecting to local and international markets Kazuri is still changing the lives of women in Kenya through empowerment and skill.

I absolutely loved learning about the process of making beads and seeing all the beautiful creations these women were making. Kazuri is an example of what all Peace Corps volunteers would like to achieve: sustainable development.
