Inspiration Behind the Bomba
I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to many parts of the world. About 8 years ago I took a trip to Kenya that changed my life completely. I initially chose Kenya for its amazing safaris and along the way I was fortunate enough to meet some incredible people.
These incredible women sell hand-made colorful, beaded jewelry. The bracelets were so well crafted that I immediately bought a few for my friends’ back home. They were the perfect gift and it was great to support the women and their families.
I gave them all to my friends. Reaction, they loved them!
I recently got the opportunity to go back to Kenya, and I knew right away I wanted more bracelets. At the same time, I also wanted to help them build a better, more stable source of income for themselves and their families.
Now, this is where Bomba Beads comes into play. Since these talented Kenyan women are limited to selling bracelets locally, they aren’t making enough money to be financially stable. Bomba Beads is a joint venture between myself and some of the Kenyan women near Nairobi to expand their reach to the global markets. Growing their market has the potential to vastly increase their income levels.
Our mission is to send quality and unique pieces of jewelry as well as support the Kenyan women in building a better future with stable income. Our first priority is to make sure that the women have a stable form of income. We also donate a percentage of profits to different charities.
