We love to support this organization. We have bought so many pieces of jewelry from them. It holds up very well. Some pieces have lasted for years. If you are in Addis, please visit BEW.

We tried to see this place, but sadly it was closed on Sundays. To find it, drive towards the US Embassy, once you get to the Embassy, you have gone to far, so turn back around and take the road before the embassy grounds start (there is a Govt Build (ministry of capacity i think)on the street corner), then head...
