|The Story of Aina Moja
established Aina Moja in 1997 as a small business venture aimed at
assisting artists in the country of Kenya, Africa. Beverly's interest in
Kenya stems from her time spent teaching there as a volunteer for the
Teachers for Africa Program. While teaching, she saw a great need for
social, economic and educational opportunities for the people of Kenya.
She felt that one way to advance the standard of living for people there
was to sell their products abroad. Artists whose products are sold through
Aina Moja receive fair market value for their goods. This enhances the
awareness of their goods and products, increases their sales, and advances
their standard of living.

In 1999, Beverly
founded Expanding Opportunities as a non-profit organization with the
greater mission of assisting all underprivileged people beginning in the
country of Kenya, Africa. In January of 2000, Aina Moja was sold to
Expanding Opportunities as a means of earning funds to assist in its
mission. The profit that is earned from Aina Moja sales goes to Expanding
Opportunities. The money is then used in the different programs of
Expanding Opportunities, with a current focus on the Street Children Fund,
Distance Learning Centers, and the STEMS project.
