Rwandan Kitenge Earrings

Want to make an impact with your gifts this Christmas season? I’ve got a little somethin’ for ya! Beatrice is a bright shining star I met in Rwanda earlier this year. She is smart, kind, compassionate, and so so driven. A survivor of the 1994 genocide, former nurse midwife and now NGO founder, she’s doing some amazing work giving voice to the voiceless, particularly women and girls in prison in the capital city of Kigali.


Beatrice and I in Kigali this past June. Practically sisters, right?

I believe so much in what she’s doing that I’m partnering with Beatrice to help raise necessary funding for the continued work at the prison. After a bit of dreaming, discussing, and creating, I just received this first batch of handicraft goods from Beatrice through her work with Family Harmony Builders Organization, and I’m so excited to share them with you!

These earrings are made from kitenge, a traditional fabric worn by women in Rwanda. Each pair is beautiful and unique, just like each woman. When you wear these earrings you are not only supporting this incredible organization financially. You see, the earrings are made by the women in prison. This means they are learning vocational skills in handcrafting, a necessary tool to help break the cycle of incarceration and ultimately move into a future of hope and restoration at the time of their release. So when you buy a pair, you are actually helping to change not only these women lives but the lives of their children. You are changing the trajectory of their future. So. What are you waiting for?

I’ll be posting a few pairs for sale each week. Take a look and see if there’s anything that tickles your fancy! Like I said, each one is unique, so once they’re gone, they’re gone! Be sure to check back every few days for new additions.

  • Small earrings (1.5″ diameter) are $8 each
  • Medium earrings (2″ diameter) are $10 each
  • Large earrings (2.5″ diameter) are $12 each

Images below are front and back of each pair. They come with silicone earring backs and a sheer gift bag.
