About Pikolinos & the Maasai Project
The non-profit ADCAM and Pikolinos have teamed up for the Maasai Project. More than 1,600 Maasai woman use traditional craftsmanship to hand-embroider leather sent from Spain for shoes and bags. Once decorated, the leather is returned to Spain where the shoes are finished.
Their efforts have allowed the Maasai women to earn a salary that allows them to improve the quality of life of the entire community while holding on to their traditions and lifestyle. It is a stable source of income that gives them access to food and medicine, as well as to education for the youngest members of their tribe.
