Kazuri offers hope and opportunity for Kenyan women who create ceramic beads in a Fair Trade workshop that was once a part of Karen von Blixen's coffee plantation. Kazuri means "small and beautiful." Its smooth finish and high gloss make it a pleasure to wear.
Selling Kazuri is a win/win for Royal City Gogos. Most of the money raised supports 350 Kenyans in the workshop affording them a fair wage and safe working conditions. The balance of the funds goes to the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation which works with community based organizations in sub Saharan Africa.
Now, will I buy the red this year or the bronze -- maybe the black and white?
