RedTribe beadwork was started with just one widow and a few beads. The project has grown to 20 marginalized Maasai women and a manager. We are in the process of building a purpose built house so that the project can grow. With the profits generated, RedTribe is able to pay the salary of a female teacher in the Maasai academy as well as provide a sustainable income for the women and their families in the project.
“Because of RedTribe, I can now feed and clothe my family.” Nalepo
Our hopes for the future
We hope to complete our new bead-work room which will enable us to expand and diversify.
We have just launched an online shop which we hope will increase our income and so help the Maasai Academy and the Maasai Clinic continue their journey towards sustainability.
