International Sanctuary was founded in 2007 to empower girls and women escaping human trafficking. The nonprofit organization has grown to five locations globally (India, Uganda, Mexico, the United States, and will be opening in the Philippines this year). Each Sanctuary provides young women and girls escaping human trafficking the tools they need to rebuild their lives. They offer income, health, education and community, filling the gap between rescue and restoration.
Lightweight and sleek, our Teko “Strength” Pendant Earrings are set to energize your casual and work-from-home ensembles. Classic arcs of brass anchor a semi-circle of ankole smoothed to shine. Pair with the Teko Necklace to complete the look. Each pair is made with love in Kampala by a survivor of human trafficking who loves working with Ankole and is proud to have it represent their country to the world. Ankole is a natural product known for unique and beautiful variations in color ranging from ivory black to caramel and creamy white. Like fingerprints, no two polished pieces are alike. When you purchase from our Ankole Line, you’re empowering girls and women seeking freedom and helping to ensure a sustainable local economy in Kampala.
