Style That Gives Back: Beads For Learning

In this week’s Style That Gives Back installment, we’re focusing on a special set of bracelets. Beads for Learning, handcrafted by the Maasai artisans in Kenya, are one-of-a-kind bracelets that represent the futures of educated children in Africa. The Leakey Collection donates 100% of their profits to pay for teacher salaries in rural Kenya. What’s more beautiful than an educated child?

The Maasai come from the Great Rift Valley of Kenya and Tanzania. They are known for their vibrant clothing and colorful ornaments. Working with Philip and Katy Leakey, they

began to bead using grass as the main component. This sustainable resource is not only eco friendly, it’s readily available. These beautiful, handmade pieces of jewelry provide financial support and educational opportunities for the beaders and their children.

What do you think of these gorgeous bracelets? Post a comment!
