Awava Partners with the Keep It! Campaign to Raise Funds for Ivory Park Project

The "Keep It!" Campaign mobilizes young people to make a sustained, focused commitment to developing their capacity as social entrepreneurs. The idea is to provide organizations that have well-established track records of success with a steady stream of youth volunteers who are willing to make a more substantial commitment to helping those organizations achieve their goals.

The mission is to help build a community of hope in Ivory Park, South Africa by connecting individuals throughout the United States with opportunities to support the following initiatives by members of the Ivory Park Community: 1) the building of a comprehensive Community Center in the heart of the township; 2) the building and support of a library; 3)income generating projects; 4) youth programs and 5) intergenerational programs.

Awava has partnered with The "Keep It!" Campaign giving our beautiful products the opportunity to not only empower the women making our products, but products purchased through "Keep It!" also benefit the amazing community of Ivory Park.

To support this amazing joint effort so that your purchase has a double impact you can periodically purchase Awava products through The Keep It! Campaign's Ebay Giving Works store.
