When you purchase 1 bracelet, you provide a mosquito net. When you purchase a set of two, you provide 2 nets!
Mosquito nets can prevent up to 85% of Malaria cases. Think Humanity delivers the nets to villages and refugee camps in Uganda with high need. Priority is given to those most vulnerable to Malaria including children under age 5, pregnant women, and the elderly.
These colorful bangle bracelets are called "Milele Rafiki" because you can buy one for yourself and one for your rafiki (friend) when you purchase the set of two. Pronounced: Mah-lay-lay Rah-fee-kee.
Included in the bangles are mixtures of different types of beads. Beads are made from recycled paper, bone, painted clay, different seeds, glass and some have charms. All bangles have a Think Humanity paper bead to identify who you are supporting. There are small silver metal beads between the larger beads. The beads are all strung on strong elastic. The jewelry is made in the Acholi Quarter Camp in Uganda by women that have been displaced due to war in Northern Uganda. They make the paper beads from recycled paper; for example paper used from old calendars and magazines. They cut the paper into triangles and tightly roll them. After rolling the bead, they dip them into varnish. They hang them to dry and re-varnish up to ten times before stringing them onto strong, stretchy elastic. All products are unique and no two are the same.
Think Humanity has been providing mosquito nets, clean water and education to refugees in Africa since 2007. We have distributed more than 20,000 mosquito nets; we have a Community Health Centre where we treat refugees and people from rural underdeveloped communities in Uganda and a girl's hostel where girls from South Sudan, Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo can receive safety, care and love while they get an education. One way that Think Humanity raises funds is by purchasing products made by women in the Acholi Quarter Camp just outside Kampala. These Acholi women are displaced due to war in Northern Uganda and South Sudan. We have been partnering with them since 2009. When you purchase a product through Think Humanity, 100 percent of the money will go back to help with our programs in Africa. Learn more about Think Humanity.
