Entoto Beth Artisan, founded by Bethlehem Berhane as a social business, is dedicated to restoring the HIV/AIDS affected community on Entoto Mountain in Ethiopia. Through their partnering NGO Beza Entoto Outreach they provide fair-wage employment to over one hundred HIV infected women. They create unique hand-crafted jewelry pieces using local materials such as recycled tire thread, reused artillery shells in their metal beads and even coated Ethiopian coffee beans.Bethlehem’s goal for these women is to be impacted so greatly by this exposure that they, in turn, create opportunities just like this to empower others less fortunate than themselves.
