This bead factory in the affluent suburb of Karen was started to provide disadvantaged women with a source of income. It now employs more than 400 women, many of them single mothers. Kazuri means “beautiful” in Swahili, and all the beads are handmade here and turned into colourful necklaces and bracelets. You can take a tour to see how it’s done. If you can’t make it out to Karen, Kazuri has a shop closer to town at the Junction Shopping Mall just off the Ngong Road.
