Nairobi, Kenya

Tour the Kazuri Bead Factory

Originally added by Korey Taylor

Tour the beautiful Kazuri Bead Factory that employs disadvantaged members of Kenyan society, especially single mothers.

Kazuri means "small and beautiful" and that's exactly what kind of beads they produce here. The mission of the factory is to provide sustainable jobs to the local woman of Nairobi and contribute to the fair trade market. The tour is free to take, but I highly recommend visiting the shop afterwards to view the incredible jewelry and ceramics that are produced.
