Lions and Livelihoods Bracelets — 100% Proceeds to Kenya

Our Lions and Livelihoods bracelets were made by Maasai women from the Olkiramatian Women’s Group in Kenya’s South Rift Valley. Revenue from the sale of these bracelets helps the Women’s Group provide tuition for local school girls and contributes to the operation of the Lale’enok Resource Center, a community center that helps support both wildlife conservation and thriving Maasai livelihoods. Bracelets are often sold at the Zoo’s Africa exhibit. 

This partnership is supported by the Zoo’s Project Saving Species.
