Using primarily local recycled materials and various beads produced by artisans around Africa, the Lady Volta Beads project, initiated in May 2007, supports alternative livelihoods amongst young women. The young women currently producing the jewelry require training in new techniques and general support for the production of new designs.

The volunteer will be asked to create new designs using local materials with a focus on the export market, while at the same time supporting the implementation and production of new designs through interactive jewelry designing classes for our group of young women.
