A few months back, I attended an event at the Jane.com headquarters to learn more about their collaboration with Musana International. What I learned is that Musana is an amazing company. Why? Their mission is to empower women and provide opportunities for work not only to better the individual, but to better the lives of their children. Musana does so by employing women in Uganda to create beautifully handcrafted jewelry (I own many pieces), that is then sold in America. The company is a non-profit organization, so all of the money earned goes back to the women in Uganda.
Starting today, these bracelets go live on Jane.com where 100% of the proceeds will go to the amazing women who made them. Isn’t that great?! Another one of my favorite parts? Each piece is tagged with a photo of the artisan who created it, giving you a real sense of who these women are. It is so inspiring to see these strong Ugandan women face the world with fierce determination, inspiring a generation of change for their families.
You can check out the bracelets on Jane.com starting today (woohoo!) and you can help spread the word by using hashtag #stronglikeyou. I hope you are as excited about this collaboration as I am!
