Dinka Corset - This beaded garment takes a few weeks to make and is just one of the examples of contemporary and traditional jewellery being produced by members of The Roots Project, a not-for-profit organisation with a centre based in Nimra Talata, Juba, the capital of South Sudan located by the Nile River. Founded in 2009 by Anyieth D’Awol; a human rights activist, researcher and writer on women’s rights the Roots Project provides a platform and secure environment to help women gain economic independence from creating and selling traditional crafts.
