Ila Joi - Empowering Women

The women in our Ila Joi program use discarded materials such as cereal and cardboard boxes, oil drums, and trash paper to create beautiful “upcycled” pieces of jewelry. Not only are these women cleaning up the Haitian landscape with their recycling efforts, they are also bringing new hope to their families by earning the means to pay for their children's food, shelter, and education. This means fewer orphans, minimized crime, less garbage, relieved stress, and a whole lot more beauty! If you are interested in purchasing these one-of-a-kind creations or hosting a jewelry party to support our artisans, please visit or contact .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
