Duncan & Wilburforce Wandera - Kenya
Brass Jewelry ~ Employs 7 Men
We first met these two incredibly talented brothers in May 2016 while searching for jewelry makers around Nairobi. As it turns out, Duncan and Wilburforce live and work in Kibera, one of the largest slums in Africa. Residents are often living on $1.00 or less per day and many have no formal education.
But, as you can see from their beautiful brass jewelry, creativity and talent always find a way to be expressed. We are thrilled to be partnering with them to bring their creations to the U.S.
