JYMG is a proud to offer hand-crafted women's purses designed by the Twendelee Women's Group, a Nairobi, Kenya-based women’s entrepreneur self-help cooperative project. TWENDELEE is a Swahili word meaning ‘let us develop.’ Originating in the second-largest slum in Nairobi; the community of Kawangare, members are locally trained artisans in bead-work and sewing. The women design and make women’s handbags, beaded bowls and jewelry.
In a ground-breaking journey of a lifetime, two best friends set off on a twenty-two state, 18-thousand mile plus, ten month cross-country road trip with one goal - find Mr. Right. What began as an unconventional search for love and adventure morphed into something larger than life; larger than both the single, professional women canvassing the United States searching for the perfect mate.
