BeadWORKS creates opportunities for pastoralist women in northern Kenya to translate their traditional skills into much-needed income. By promoting peaceful community partnerships, we are committed to conserving natural resources and wildlife through self-governed, community-owned conservancies and sustainable, social and ethical enterprise.
BeadWORKS not only empowers women, but
it is helping to diversify family income in rural areas – income that would otherwise come from livestock rearing, charcoal burning and other unsustainable means. Many of our artisans are former charcoal sellers – an industry that is devastating the last
remaining forested areas of northern Kenya.
We are happy to have been awarded a gold award & recognized as the Best Sustainability Innitiative of the year 2022 by the Kenya Ecommerce awards. The award proves our artisans resiliance and hard work using sustainable processes from production to you the consumers/ customers.
