Kenyan Beaded Bowls

Ol Malo Designs is a company owned and run by Julia Francombe that provides employment and help for the Samburu people in Kenya, and develops their talents through art. Julia employs more than 100 Samburu women who do the incredible beadwork, a native skill. These Kenyan beaded products are sold locally in the Ol Malo Designs shop, and internationally through distribution partners.

Kenyan women admire the beaded boxes they've crafted of high quality Czech beads.This bead work provides the Samburus with employment and income and encourages them to promote their timeless talents. During the severe drought in 2000, Ol Malo fed over 200 families who had lost all their livestock - and were literally starving -- through the sales of these products. To help address and prevent disasters like this, Julia created the Ol Malo Trust which has grown into a pioneering community charity, building a bustling nursery school, protecting several water sources, organizing mobile health clinics, and supporting the Ol Malo Eye Project to eradicate trachoma in one of the most remote regions of Africa.

Trachoma is an infectious eye disease that affects more than 80% of adults over the age of 30. It is a preventable disease, the root of which is poverty. Supported by product sales and fundraising efforts such as the Nairobi marathon, Ol Malo has funded more than 200 surgical procedures to return sight and remove pain; established nurse-led community education; begun the provision of clean water and has developed links with and training of Kenyan Ophthalmologists.
