Sishemo Bead Enterprise Celebrates One Year!

ZAMBIA | In July, the Sishemo bead enterprise in Nakatindi, Zambia turned one! It’s been an interesting first year for the Sishemo Studio artisans. From refining their craft to learning how to operate a business, the ladies have proven themselves fierce entrepreneurs particularly with the obvious challenges of the past four months. Despite the current situation, the ladies are all positive and optimistic about the future of Sishemo.

AKP celebrated their milestone with a birthday cake and a team trip to the Victoria Falls — where Helen (one of the Sishemo artisans) had never been, despite living in the nearby Nakatindi community her whole life. Here’s to many more successful years!
