Mma Tshabalala, Beaded Hope artist

Beadwork Artist

Beaded Hope hired Mma Tshabalala on the spot after discovering her beaded art talents in a Mamelodi open-air market.

 Mma Tshabalala puts into action the South African saying, "If you're not infected, you're affected."

She takes in orphans who lost family to HIV/AIDS, feeds them, and teaches them traditional African beadworking skills.
