tanzania // shanga & shanga foundation

"Shanga Shangaa Ltd is a successful socially conscious for-profit enterprise based at Arusha Coffee Lodge in Arusha, Tanzania, which employs people with disabilities to create unique, high quality, handmade jewelery, glassware and home ware using recycled materials. These products are sold in Tanzania and all over the world, with profits bring reinvested back into development of new products and further employment of disabled people."

I had the amazing opportunity to spend a few hours at Shanga. It was so inspiring. The place was filled with peace and hope of completely changed futures. I got to spend time with the wonderful people that worked there...talking with them, laughing with them, and even getting to try my hand at working with them with a little beading!
