Here at EE Jewellery, we're a small company made up entirely of women. Being in the UK, we have the privileged position of having resources readily available to us which enable a female-run business to flourish and thrive. We want all women, all over the world, to have the same opportunities.
With this is mind, we're incredibly proud to be supporting a charity that is so very close to the EE heart: Women for Women International, a charity dedicated to supporting marginalised women in countries affected by war and conflict.
We will be donating to Women for Women International in two ways. Firstly, we have designed this simple statement necklace, available in a choice of three messages: Sisterhood, Women for Women and Still I Rise. Available for £22, £8 per sale of this necklace will be donated to Women for Women International.
In October 2018, Eclectic Eccentricity sponsored one woman through Women for Women International's 12 month holistic training programme, helping her transform her life and inspire hope for the future. From October 2019, we hope to sponsor three women through this wonderful programme.
We're so excited to share this journey with you.

When there is an outbreak of war or violence, women suffer most – they experience trauma, sexual violence and the death of loved ones. After the conflict is over, the world’s attention moves on, but these same women are left to rebuild their families and communities.
Women for Women International supports women who live in some of the world’s most dangerous places. Women enrol on the charity’s year-long training programme, where they learn how to earn and save money, improve their family’s health and make their voices heard at home and in their community.
Since 1993, the charity has helped more than 479,000 marginalised women survivors of war in Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, Kosovo, Nigeria, Rwanda and South Sudan.
With over twenty brutal armed conflicts across the globe, there’s never been a greater need to support women survivors of war. With your help, women can graduate from the Women for Women International programme with the skills, knowledge and resources to become successful entrepreneurs. They will pass on their knowledge to their neighbours and children, creating a ripple effect.
Join the Sisterhood: Watch and share the #SheInspiresMe film or sponsor a woman through the one-year programme for £22 per month and help change the world one woman at a time. Find out more at womenforwomen.org.uk or follow @WomenforWomenUK on social media.
