A lovely Maasai woman models some of her jewelry
We went to the off-the-beaten-track town of Longido in northern Tanzania to check out the work of Project TEMBO, a non-profit started by two Canadian women to provide education for girls and economic empowerment for women. We spent the night in a secluded and remote boma-like campsite. After setting up our tents, we went on a guided hike of the area, and by the time we returned, more than a dozen women had arrayed themselves on either side of the road to display their beaded, metal, wood, and shell jewelry. And though we bought trinkets from as many of the women as we could, more of them turned up the next morning as well. I can't help but think that they're entrepreneurism was partly a product of Project TEMBOs activities in the village.
