Handmade bracelet made with African heishi beads, 24 karat gold-dipped discs, gently stretch to fit over wrist
This beautiful Black & Gold handmade bracelet from Kamili is made by a Congolese refugee who has been resettled in Richmond, Virginia after spending decades in refugee camps in Rwanda. Join us in welcoming them and supporting them on their journey to rebuild their lives here in the US.
Kamili is Swahili for “full.” A word that captures the mission behind everything Kamili does. When refugees are forced to flee their war-torn communities, they are stripped of their humanity. Living in refugee camps for years, even decades. But as they resettle in their new home here in the Richmond, Virginia they start to regain their dignity - and then some. They become full of hope and purpose. That is what Kamili is intended to nurture and grow. By providing dignified jobs collaborating with fellow refugees, we want them to always feel full. Full of hope, full of community, full of purpose, full of love.
