Gem Legacy X Gem Breakfast
We donate a portion of all Gem Breakfast profits to Gem Legacy and their initiatives every year. Their mission speaks to us on a deep level – to use gemstones to empower people and equip them education, supplies, and infrastructure to build the businesses and lives they deserve.
Whether local independent jewelry designers and gem cutters, or artisanal miners in East Africa – we will always align with the artisans of this world. By #supportingsmall, we all grow and expand together.
“Gems have a remarkable power to change lives and impact the world, if we all work together.” – Gem Legacy
What does Gem Legacy do specifically?
Gem Legacy supports three pillars in East African communities: children, education, and entrepreneurship:
Gem Legacy helps fund two East African schools and one Children’s Home for orphaned kids. Their initiatives raise funds for projects and supplies like building materials, books, teacher housing, toilets and sanitary supplies, toys and games, electricity, beds, and food for lunches.
In one of the Gem Legacy funded schools, students now have a 90%+ passing rate for government exams, compared to 10% in recent years.
