We know our waist beads can seem pricey, but please know that every order makes an impact and allows us to fulfill our mission to not only celebrate women, but uplift them as well. Here's how we do it:
- Ethical production. We pay our local staff in Ghana upfront and allow them set their own prices for their creations to enable wages above market standard.
- Empowerment Fund. We give away 10% of all sales (i.e. $2/line) to support women and girls across the African continent in living full and empowered lives.
