'Beats of Beads' is a non-for-profit trust, fully registered in Kenya. It was created by two women aiming to empower hundreds of Maasai women who live near the gate of Maasai-Mara National Reserve, by providing opportunities using traditional crafts - stringing beads - as a means of economic and personal development.
As 'Beats of Beads' has a holistic solution in mind, an Art-center was built that provides the women's needs mainly:
1 . Working sheds for Maasai women artists.
2. Workshops about different beadings methods.
3. Sales and marketing platforms.
The compound also have tourists attractions:
Beads museum (unique in Africa)
Art residency/lecturers accommodation.
