About this title

Synopsis:

Reviving an ancient beading tradition in Southern Africa, this resource showcases the funky, innovative, and visually stunning bead art created by the woman of MonkeyBiz, a uniquely successful grassroots project that gives employment to poor women and provides them with skills training and HIV/AIDS support. The project employs 450 disadvantaged women from around Cape Town, and serves as a model for nongovernmental organizations and individuals who wish to harness creativity to create employment and empowerment.

She is the founder of Monkeybiz; an organization that takes care of people’s needs while harnessing their creativity. Kristy Evans began working with Monkeybiz in 2005 as the special projects and organizational development manager.
