My trip to South Africa was such an inspiration and difficult to digest and share all of the wonderful people and projects at one time…
However, an example that continues to haunt me is the story of Monkeybiz. Economic development, women’s empowerment, health services – does not get more important than that.
There is a fantastic book that was published in 2007 that shows the work in full-color, inspirational detail.
The project has been revered by many from Donna Karen and Paulette Cole from ABC Carpet and Home in NYC to Deepak Chopra and Desmond Tutu.

And don’t miss the book: Bead by Bead: Reviving an ancient African tradition
