This unique jewelry statement is a fashionable, socially ethical purchase. Each bracelet purchased helps girls in Kenya avoid child marriage and continue their education. 100% of proceeds pays school fees. It’s simple, more bracelets sold = more girls can go to school. More girls go to school = happier, healthier communities. Empower women and girls by supporting their education and purchasing these handmade artisan crafts from Seeds to Sew International.
Empower Women and Girls With This Purchase
Typically in Maasai culture, girls are forced to undergo female genital mutilation and are married off to older men in polygamous households. Girls suffer from unwanted pregnancies, HIV, and the psychological and physical trauma that lasts a lifetime after FGM. Or, they bead Enkisoma (meaning Education) bracelets, which are bought by people like you, and pay for their school fees. You can be a storyteller and pass along the love, if you tell 5 others – someone else will buy a bracelet.
It’s A Conversation Starting Kind of Summer Accessory
