Where is the Love?

Stones for Change is foundation that supports artisan miners and fair trade stones. This is a new organization that sells minerals and jewelry that is made from ethically sourced gemstones, and then donates profits to the poverty stricken communities in which they came from.

In essence, this organization supports positive change through ethically sourced minerals, and donates proceeds to mining communities around the world. One of the first projects of this foundation involves raising money for Nurturing Minds, a school for young women of Tanzania, Africa.

The idea behind this project is to provide education and build schools for this community. Ideally because educated girls will have a better life and economic opportunities, bring up healthier families, and better manage their natural resources.

Nurturing Minds is a non-profit organization established in January 2007 by Polly Dolan, who also established SEGA (Secondary Education for Girls' Advancement).

Jewelry made from ethically sourced minerals coming soon! The beautiful gold necklace is available, along with the garnets. Contact us for any questions.
