These beads were produced by a mother at Heshima (Swahili word for dignity). Heshima is a NGO that was founded to empower and give dignity to mothers of children with special needs. The children receive special education and physiotherapy at Dignity, while the mothers design and manufacture the jewellery. The income of this jewellery is used to provide the above services. In the production of the jewellery ethnic beads are used and designs are very vibrant.
