Meet Namaja Rose. Before joining Akola life was a bit tough for Rose. She used to farm for pay and the pay wasn’t worth the work done and she was unable to provide adequate healthcare for her 5 children. Since then Rose has accomplished quite a lot! She has purchased a plot of land to start building a house, started a business with her husband (he now is a "boda-boda" driver who drives people for fares) and now has access to loans through her savings groups. Way to go, Rose! #akolajewelry #springjewelry #springcolor #handmadejewelry #ethicallymade #ethicaljewelry #sustainablefashion #spring #empoweringwomen

Introducing the beautiful Naigaga Saida modeling the *NEW* Bailey earring! Saida is a weaver at Akola's Nabukosi center. Before joining Akola, Saida and her husband were farmers and were barely able to make ends meet. By working together they were able to send all 8 of their children to school, but not to the desired schools they wished for their children. Akola has helped Saida learn to solve problems and become an agent of transformation in her community! All of her children are now in their desired school and she no longer has to worry about their education. She has learned to budget and cover all her needed expenses and used her new skills to help her neighbors. #akolajewelry #uganda #handmade #handmadejewelry #sheworks #empowered #jewelry #transform #women #amazing #ethicalfashion #womeninbusiness #womensupportingwomen
