Supporting Young Social Entrepreneurs With The Resolution Project

Here at Live Worldly we are constantly looking for new non-profit partners, but it’s not every day that we find one as inspiring and deeply rewarding to work with as Seeds to Sew. As Seeds to Sew is our newest addition to our non-profit partners, we have been truly amazed by firstly, the value they place on educational importance and secondly, the significance and beauty of their Enkisoma handmade beaded bracelets. “Enkisoma” translates to “education in the Maasai language.

Seeds to Sew is a nonprofit organization with a mission to improve lives of women and young girls in Kenya through education and job training.  By helping these females who have grown up in disadvantaged, poverty-stricken, and war-torn areas through new educational opportunities, economically sound paths are paved and healthier, happier lives are lived.  Here are just a few intriguing statistics that support these claims, which can also be found on their website:


  •   When a female in a developing country receives seven or more years     of education, she marries four years later and births 2.2 fewer children. The population’s HIV rate, along with the malnutrition rate decreases.
  •   One extra year of primary school raises girls’ eventual wages by 10-20 percent. One extra year of secondary school consequentially raises their wages by 14-25 percent. Overall, if 10% more girls go to secondary school, the country’s economy grows by 3 percent.
  •   And lastly, research shows that the global population of girls ages 10-24 , which is already the largest in history, is expected to peak in the next decade. There are nearly 50 million girls living in poverty, but yet 99.4% of international money is not directed to them.

Therefore, by allowing these women in Kenya to receive better educational opportunities through the simple act of purchasing a bracelet, it empowers them to create a better future for themselves and generations to come.  Make sure to check out the Seeds to Sew website for more ways to support these young women in Kenya.  Be a part of something bigger.
