To celebrate International Women's Day with you this month, we created this necklace, made by and modelled by the Zena graduates themselves.
Both Betty and Sandra are wearing their necklaces in front of the businesses they started with their Zena savings.
The Zena women are the stars of the show around here. Join the fan club.
- Chain is 16" gold filled.
Zena products are handcrafted by female entrepreneurs in Kamuli, Uganda. Zena women are female entrepreneurs who were previously living below the poverty line. Through short term apprenticeships, they are able to earn a living wage above the poverty line, while saving monthly towards the start-up capital they need to start their businesses.
At Zena, we believe that investing in female entrepreneurs has the power to change the stories of extreme poverty and gender inequality.
All of our products are made from waste materials.
Our earrings are handcrafted from Ankole Cattle Horn that has been discarded as a by-product of the agricultural industry. We love that working with Cattle horn supports local farmers in Uganda to diversify their income while making the agricultural industry more efficient. No animals are harmed in the making of our products.
We also use recycled scrap brass from Kenya.
We are committed to using recycled, locally sourced materials and making intentional packaging choices.
