It is a wonderful gift to help people in need become self-sufficient.
It’s even better when you get a beautifully made product out of it 🙂
1000 Shillings has a pretty amazing business model. A group of highly talented women artisans earn capital for their own small businesses by making limited edition jewelry for the company. Each and every product sold through 1000 Shillings helps a woman establish a small business, which enables her to support her family.
These women are not being given handouts, they are being offered a leg up.
I urge you to check out the lovely paper bead jewelry on the site (all under $30) and read more about the lives of each of these amazing mothers
