Have you heard about the online store, Asande Shop? Asanda Shop is a locally curated jewelry and lifestyle online store, created to support and empower the women of Africa.
Asande, in Zulu means ‘abundance’, and in the Congo “Azande’ means ‘a people who possess much land’. Creating more for both these countries and their plights is the driving force behind Georgi Kapepula, founder of Asande. 30% of all jewelry sales go to a women’s empowerment project in DR Congo and locally Asande works with women from the community looking to create a brighter future for themselves and their families. Asande has a selection of beautifully curated items that are locally sourced.
