Development for Stability
Aayenda Jewelry, a project of the non-profit, Future Brilliance, develops and markets beautiful, contemporary, Afghan jewelry, creating opportunity for hundreds of local artisans, especially women.
Our vision is a world of empowered young women supporting one another creatively – and economically.
Aayenda Jewelry is hand-crafted by members of the Aayenda Jewelry Co-Operative. So far, work has been generated for over 1200 artisans (including 300 war widows) and over 30 skilled Afghan jewelers and gem cutters, trained to international standards by Future Brilliance Afghanistan Organisation (FBAO).
The Aayenda customer is a Millennial woman who seeks to express herself creatively with unique jewelry designs. She has a social conscience and enjoys supporting purpose-driven companies that she knows are making the world a better place. For the Millennial woman who is both fashion and socially conscious, Aayenda creates beautiful hand-crafted designer jewelry that empowers women in Afghanistan with careers and opportunity.
The Aayenda customer is stylish, idealistic, enterprising & proud. She can be found shopping for product with purpose at fair-trade and fashion boutiques, globally.
We are immensely grateful to our donors, sponsors and partners for helping us equip young women and men in Afghanistan with the tools to succeed in today’s interconnected and competitive world.
