Well educated in the characteristics of fair trade, Jedando Modern Handicrafts provides a worldwide market for Kenyan craftspeople who no longer can rely on the tourist market for sustainable income. Your purchase of their products sets you apart as an important supporter of opportunity in the slums of Kenya, where opportunity is scarce. Fifteen young men and women of Zakale Creation Self Help Group find a sustainable income and a path out of the Nairobi slums by creating this jewelry.
