Profile: Meet Noolkishiru, a Maa Beadwork Artisan Success Story



Noolkishiru Moriaso is a member of the Olkuroto Beadwork Group in the Maasai Mara, Kenya. She is 38 years-old, married, and has five children.

She joined the Maa Beadwork social enterprise in 2013. At that time, her children were not in school. As a direct result of the income that she has earned as a beadwork artisan, she has now been able to afford school fees. She has also started a small business where she sells potatoes in the market once a week. Rather than being a burden, Noolkishuru has been a pillar to her family by providing for their basic needs through her beadwork income.



"Since joining Maa Beadwork, I have been able to make an impact in my household and family. Today I have a business, my kids are in school, they have clothes, and I can feed them,"Noolkishiru reports. 

Her ambition is to grow her business in the future and to build a permanent home for her family.


Maa Beadwork is facilitated by the Maa Trust, a philanthropic endeavor committed to the betterment of Africa's wildlife and people. The collective includes 494 women across seventeen villages. Together, through the beadwork products they create and sell, they support over 9000 people in their communities. Classic Africa is proud to contribute to the Maa Trust and its impactful projects in Kenya.
