Responsible Jewelry Transformative Events

MWA Clean Up Event

You can make a difference in the lives of the Marange Community. Donate to the Launch Event of the Marange Women's Alliance (MWA). The Responsible Jewelry Transformative (a non profit) is working with the MWA to create positive change now. Women living in the Marange diamond community are stepping out into the open for a Market Clean up Event.

They are bringing brooms and compassion to the most marginalized community members. Many Human Rights abuses are happening daily at this market, often at the hands of those associated with diamond mining. The MWA will engage victims of human trafficking who frequent the market offering them snacks, beverages and the opportunity to document their stories. Flyers with the Zimbabwe constitutional rights will be handed out in English and Shona for all to keep. The women will sweep and pick up trash, community clean up is an initiative that gathers people together improving conditions, giving pride in community and hope for the future.

Please take a minute to sign the petition below to the Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Company calling for a stop to alleged abuse against women in the Marange Community.

The Marange Women's Alliance has acquired a permit to carry out this event from the local police, Saturday September 11th.
