Kidz Positive’s ‘Positive Beadwork Project’ is a job creation initiative for mothers and caregivers of HIV impacted families. Women are trained in the skills of loom beading and traditional beading techniques, to create beaded products marketed mainly as ‘corporate gifts with a conscience’.

Our artists enjoy a weekly income they can depend on and as they work from home, they can care for their dependents while earning. We welcome new ‘recruits’ who are taught beadwork skills by our most skilled bead worker.
