Art & Humanitarianism = Best Friends 4ever

We have made several different posts in the past about humanitarian businesses and organizations that strive to create equality through beading and the arts.  Today, we wanted to share with you an article on an amazing project that allows the disabled to work in Africa.  As the article explains, in Tanzania and other parts of Africa, disabled workers are often not hired for jobs even if they are qualified.  Shanga's House teaches them how to make jewelry and other beautiful art from a variety of materials including recycled glass.  It takes the societal underdog, gives them a way to earn a regular wage, shows them acceptance and helps them turn into an amazing artist. How absolutely beautiful.
