Kibera’s Victorious Youth Group

In a small self-built workshop at the edge of Kibera, one of Africa’s largest slums, a group of craftspeople, designers and artists create jewelry out of old butcher bones.  Employing 23 members full-time, Victorious trains and employs at-risk youth in bonecraft.  We are excited to have them joining us at Maker Faire Africa 2010.
