Above Rubies is a livelihood project created to help widows and single mothers.
This group of women are producing top quality handcrafted beads, made out of recycled magazines and paper and are using these to create beautiful bracelets, necklaces and other jewellery. They also create beautiful crochet toys, buntings and more.
Life can be so hard for these women who are incredibly vulnerable and often taken advantage of with poor wages and work conditions, if they can find any.
They have told us that they feel a great sense of accomplishment and pride at their finished product and as they see their savings increase. They are now well able to care for their children.
Take a look at the online store, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
These products are beautiful in every way. Every piece and toy carrying hope and every purchase an expression of love.
Being artisans in our projects gives them friends, dignity, security and hope.
