Be inspired by the story behind this collection!
This new collection features brightly coloured 'Caring Bracelets' each colour named after a Peruvian mother who will benefit from this innovative project.
Chavin has partnered with the charity SOS Children to support its family strengthening programme in the community centre 'Luz y Vida' in Lima, Peru. The family strengthening programme improves the economic situation of local families by giving training. It also provides help with dealing with family problems: women are taught how to tackle domestic violence, and SOS Children makes sure that they have access to basic knowledge, such as health topics like birth control. All of these issues are discussed in talks and role plays. Chavin is working with SOS Children's jewellery making course which is part of the project. The class teaches single mothers to create commercial costume jewellery out of plastic pearls and metal filaments to help them secure a small additional income to improve the quality of life for themselves and their children.
