In 2006, the Tumaini Children’s Project partnered with the University of Ottawa’s Centre for Global Health (formerly the Centre for International Health and Development). Students designed the paper bead project as part of a course entitled “Theories of International Health”. The income-generating project was implemented by 4 students during a field trip to Kenya in 2007.
Children aged 4-16 years made paper-bead jewelry from donated supplies, which was sold along with a companion DVD shot by TCP project volunteers. Proceeds went toward TCP’s Kenyan partners.
