The story behind these earrings:
Located near Mombasa, Kenya’s second largest city, Bombolulu provides employment and numerous other benefits, including housing, medical aid and adult education, for adults who are blind or physically disabled and who would otherwise have virtually no chance of employment in the mainstream labor market. Artisans create jewelry and other products for both local and export markets. An on-staff designer creates new jewelry lines, including both the trademark whimsical Bombolulu recycled materials jewelry and other design pieces.
Bombolulu was established in 1969. It is one of a number of branches of the Association for the Physically Disabled of Kenya Coast Branch, a Kenyan charitable organization. Bombolulu’s campus includes housing units for artisans, artisan workshops, and a guesthouse to help generate income.
