Our Fearless Necklace & Helping Women Use their Power

You may not know that through the sales of our Fearless Necklace every March, you are supporting Women for Women International; a charity that helps women survivors of war rebuild their lives. Since 1993, the charity has helped 519,700 women across 8 conflict-affected countries.

Women for Women International have worked in Rwanda since 1997, offering women the chance to regain control of their lives. In the aftermath of the devastating Genocide in 1994, women stepped forward to help create peace.

Assisting them in understanding and defending their own rights, Women for Women International have so far supported more than 76,000 women in Rwanda through the year-long programme. 

Donations from this year's sales of the Fearless Necklace go directly to supporting one women in particular; Marie Gorette Yangiriye, who through a year-long training programme will gain a marketable job skill, practical knowledge about her health and rights, and the confidence to make her voice heard at home and in her community. 

 

 

If there are any questions you would like to ask her, or any words of encouragement you would like to send her way, please get in touch with us at (hello@edgeofember.com) and we will be sure to pass them on.
