Description

Musana Jewelry is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) social enterprise that sells beautifully handcrafted jewelry and accessories in the United States produced by Ugandan artisans. One hundred percent of profits from U.S. sales, combined with donations and grants, are invested in the growth of Musana artisans through educational and vocational trainings. We are firmly rooted in Uganda, particularly in our town of Lugazi, and so we strive to integrate into the Ugandan economy by sourcing the majority of our materials locally and collaborating with local artisans, academics and professionals.

Musana Jewelry establishes the market connection between talented Ugandan craftswomen and international consumers. We connect people around the world through an appreciation of beautiful handicraft and the intention to support fair-trade, handmade, environmentally conscious products. In bringing artisans together with Musana supporters, interns, volunteers, bloggers, and professionals, all invested in seeing the end of absolute poverty, cultural barriers are broken down, perspectives are broadened, and even lasting connections are formed.

We are looking for interns year-round, both in Uganda and in the U.S., so even if you do not see a current listing that matches your timing or interest, please feel free to get in touch and share how you feel you could contribute to Musana's growth. Email Kristen at info@musanajewelry.org.
