Come support a local NGO, dedicated to helping a community living in the shadow of HIV/AIDs. By buying jewelry, you are providing an income to these women, as well as giving them a renewed sense of purpose. The profits go to not only their salary and health care, but also their children's education.

We love to support this organization. We have bought so many pieces of jewelry from them. It holds up very well. Some pieces have lasted for years. If you are in Addis, please visit BEW.

First comment is that if you decide to visit the Beza Entoto Workshop, make sure you take the address and a telephone contact if possible so that the Taxi driver can find the place! We drove past it twice before third time lucky and we...More

Shopping not to lose! Wonderful and original jewelry done with coffee beams. The workers are former wood collectors women. Prices are reasonable. Warm client reception. Look how they perform the job. The address is changed. Now they are near the Egyptian embassy. Look the map.

We tried to see this place, but sadly it was closed on Sundays. To find it, drive towards the US Embassy, once you get to the Embassy, you have gone to far, so turn back around and take the road before the embassy grounds start...More
