Sasa Turkana Necklace

Kenya

Turkana Necklace

$ 60.00
The Turkana are a proud yet impoverished tribe that live and farm along the Nile river. With earthtoned beads, horn and a pop of bright blue, this necklace is will make a poweful statment this season. The clasp is adjustable so you can chose the length that suits your desired look. It's stunning and versatile, rooting the Fall Winter collection of Sasa Designs by the Deaf.
  
Sasa Designs by the Deaf launched in Fall 2011 with the goal of providing employment and fair wages to Deaf artisans in Kenya. With an estimated unemployment rate of 85% among the Deaf in Kenya, few will have an opportunity to discover their potential, work in dignity and earn a fair wage. Employers are simply not willing to deal with the communication issues that arise working with the Deaf.

Sasa Designs gives Deaf artisans the chance they’ve been waiting for – the chance to learn new skills, to discover what they are capable of and to feel productive. A subsidiary of DOOR International, Sasa Designs by the Deaf provides training and employment for Deaf women who have faced a lifetime of discrimination. For the first time, they are recognized for their potential, and not for their inability to communicate with the world at large.
