The "Story"While on African photo safari I visited several tribal communities in South Africa, Kenya and Tanzania. After meeting these sweet unassuming tribal people and seeing how they live from day-to-day with hunger, disease and death I decided I wanted to do something. I connected with the women in several villages and set up a system to purchase their beautiful handmade jewelry and curios.These villages are the poorest of the poor. They live in mud huts, have very little or no furniture, no clean water or modern conveniences of any kind.Some of the communities I visited were in the highest poverty stricken areas of Kenya and South Africa leading in HIV Aids infections and increased mortality rates. The average income for those that do have one is $108 US to $135 US a year. The women who make these items care for an increasingnumber of orphans and vulnerable children. Your purchase of their beautiful handmade collectibles assists in supplying them with the most basic needs of life that most of us take for granted every day.
