They were delighted to meet our team in Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and later decided to visit our women beaders out in the field. One of the most interesting parts of the visit was meeting up with Jackeline Saina Korosian who is one of our star beaders from il ngwesi conservancy, Jackeline is the mastermind behind our Saina ace necklace design which we named after her.
IBU Movement has been the biggest customer for the saina necklace by Jackeline and her team, Susan and her team were excited to meet Jackeline training the rest of her network on how to make the saina necklace. They visited Kalama Conservancy and Sera Conservancy as well to meet our women beaders from that area who make other products and promised to place more orders as well as pay another visit to our incredible team of women beaders!
