Same Sky is an African-based, fair trade company that offers employment to Rwandan and Zambian women struggling against poverty. By working as an artisan with Same Sky, these women have the opportunity to rebuild their lives and provide for their families. They’re taught skills of the trade and given tools they need to become successful entrepreneurs and change life as they know it. Same Sky’s artisans handcraft jewelry from hand-blown glass beads and crocheted fabric and 100% of net proceeds are returned to support the organization. We’re also happy to hear influential females like Meryl Streep, Alicia Keys, Fergie, Queen Latifah, Goldie Hawn, and Jessica Alba have all been seen sporting Same Sky’s jewelry with a purpose.
