Mudondo’s Beads

We absolutely adore beads here at ROWAN! Not only do they teach our members important business skills, but also allow for essential artistic expression. Now that we’ve shared so much about how they are made, lets meet the folks that make them. Each one of them has (sometimes a sad) story to tell. Today meet Mudondo, she is from the village of Naitandu.

Flashback to Mudondo of 2011

Mudondo is a widow who cares for her 10 children alone. Although she was born into the Muslim faith, she has since converted to Christianity. She makes beads to earn & save money for looking after her children. In her free time, Mudondo enjoys making mats with her children or eating her favorite food: cassava & sweet potatoes!

For over a decade, ROWAN (through your donations) has helped a lot of deserving people like Mudondo live a more fulfilled life. Enabling them to grow personally, spiritually & financially. Thanks so much to everyone who has helped to make all of the ROWAN projects possible!
