    Nicole joins the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women in inviting you to purchase bracelets for a good cause!

     

    The UN Trust Fund has teamed up with Soko, an ethical fashion-based social enterprise that is using online technology to bring beautiful and creatively designed jewelry made by artisans in Kenya to the global market.

     

    Soko’s artisans have created a unique pair of handmade bracelets to raise awareness and funds for UN Trust Fund programmes. The orange bracelets – the colour designated by the UNiTE campaign to symbolize a brighter future without violence – are available at http://shopsoko.com/UNTF.

     

    Purchases of the bracelets are contributing to the economic empowerment of under-privileged artisan communities in Kenya. At the same time, 20 per cent of funds received by Soko will be donated to the UN Trust Fund, to support programmes to prevent and eliminate violence against women and girls around the world.

     

    Get your bracelet and share you pictures on social media mentioning @SayNO_UNiTE and #UNTF.
