Young Entrepreneurs using Fashion & Design to Empower Women to Rise Above Poverty

Standard

A dear friend of mine told me about 31 Bits a few months ago. She and I are always talking about starting a business together, what our latest creative ideas are, and how we can give back. I think what captivated us most was that we could relate to where this young group of women were coming from when they started their organization.  They were recent college grads wanting to make a difference.  They took a trip to Nothern Uganda and met a community of women that would forever change their lives. Since 2008, they have over 115 woman creating jewelry which provides them the opportunity to become sustainable and rise above poverty.

This young group of women/entrepreneurs are truly inspiring and it gives me hope that doing what you love AND serving a bigger purpose can be achieved! Check out some of their amazing pieces!
