The Koru Jewelry Collection was conceived and created to support the "Imagine, Inspire, Innovate Foundation" aka i3f. It is the brainchild of the founder and treasurer, Staci M Alziebler-Perkins. Staci is inspired by doing good in the world, and loves the Koru both for it's physical beauty as well as it's symbolism of renewal. I am both inspired by Staci and the work she does, and am honored to bring this vision to life in order to support i3f.
The mission of i3f is to addresses the root causes of conflict, unemployment, poverty and hopelessness, by encouraging the growth of employment opportunities, improved infrastructure, and greater stability.
Currently working in Kenya, i3f ensures youth have opportunities to build their future and better their communities by providing mentorship opportunities and business plan development support so they can run profitable, sustainable, replicable, socially responsible businesses. i3f is developing partnerships with the Kenyan based organization, Ongoza, as well as Strathmore Enterprise Development Centre. i3f will select 10 young women through a pitch contest who will participate in a continual training and mentorship program.
Your purchase will assist with current fundraising. Wearing the Koru will support you with the symbolic message of renewal, and will open conversations giving you will the opportunity to inspire others to get involved with i3f as well. We all do better when we all do better.
This is a new collection, and is still being developed. We currently have only the large Koru pendant, and will soon have the small koru pendant, as well as earrings and lapel pins.
