we are highlighting two of our favorite companies this month. Their stories will surely lift your spirits!

Karama’s gorgeous brass jewelry comes from Kibera, the largest urban slum in Africa. Kibera is located in
Nairobi, Kenya. It is there, in a tiny mud and tin workshop, that each piece is lovingly made by
exceptionally talented artisans. Karama understands that small businesses are key to job creation and
economic development. Lives are changed when people are offered the opportunity earn a living wage.
That is why Karama invests in product development and on the job training. This exceptional company
is especially committed to marginalized artisans, giving them a voice and a viable place in society.
Pizazz loves this jewelry and all that it represents.
Until we meet again Under the Awning!
