100% of product revenues are reinvested in the social mission to empower these women to transform their families and communities. Through your purchase, this Earring will provide the income for Akola women to provide the basic needs for their family. These specific pieces are hand-rolled by over 200 women and mothers living in rural villages of Uganda. This skill allows them to work from the comforts of their own home so they can look after their children while earning a source of income.
Hand-carved and hand-dyed bone beads, hand-wrapped raffia beads and gold-toned discs.
Due to the one-of-a-kind nature of our hand-carved bone items, exact color and patterns may vary from the image shown.
In preparation for this collection, Akola has trained and employed women in poverty in Uganda to dye and braid raffia, which is then used to wrap beads and create tassels.
