Our mission is to design and sell high quality jewellery made with respect for the environment and the people that make them. We want to help people out of poverty by making sure that they can provide for themselves. Therefore, we work side-by-side with our designers who live in the Acholi Quarter in Kampala (Uganda). Together we apply our passions, talents and ideas. By giving our designers a plan to market and sell their products internationally they are able to earn a steady income. 22STARS believes that to really empower people to provide for themselves they need more than that: Part of our net profit will be used to finance our 22STARS projects, educating our designers and their children; they receive English lessons, learn about Income Generating Activities (IGA), get social support, and music, dance and drama classes.
22STARS wants to pass on their message and passion to you with their brand name label on all their jewellery that stands for power, success, protection and love. Our message is to be conscious about the world we all live in and to follow your heart and to reach for the stars!
