The Ithemba Foundation


“Sky-blue for Hope” ribbons

We chose the colour sky-blue for these ribbons, because blue is the colour of peace, of optimism and hope.

The sky-blue beaded ribbons are made by HIV-positive women in Khayelitsha, Cape Town, with each ribbon therefore also bringing hope to them. The ribbons are sponsored, which means the R30 raised from each ribbon sold goes directly to Ithemba’s research fund.

How to order your “Sky-blue for Hope” ribbon:
