EARTH AFRICA supports over 1000 impoverished rural women from villages across South Africa. 

African beadwork is a means to empower these women who without any formal education have little chance of gaining meaningful employment. Proceeds from the sale of their Zulu Beadwork goes directly to these women and is their sole source of income, allowing them to support themselves and their families.

While these rural beaders are highly talented it is virtually impossible for them to access the mainstream market to sell their beautiful beadwork - through their collaboration with Earth Africa, these products are now sold not only in South Africa but around the globe.

The rural beaders work from their village homes which allows them to produce their beadwork while still attending to their children, livestock, and subsistence crops.

Thank you - Siyabonga.
