In early January, Isaya and Aric took off to Tanzania on a mission to spread the word about TWO and connect with representatives from the Datoga, Hadzabe, Iraqw, Maasai, and Sukuma communities we will work with. They have been working hard, laughing hard, and relentlessly connecting with individuals whose own ideals are aligned with our goal. We are so proud of the work they are doing and very thankful to those who have helped to make this mission possible. More photos and updates to come soon!
Here are some photos of their trip so far:

The Datoga are known for their beautiful jewelry, some of which we will soon have for sale. Here, Isaya and Aric sit with Datoga blacksmiths, learning about how the jewelry is made.
