Asandé hopes to restore and rebuild the lives of those tormented by the war in the DRC. As a social business, we seek to provide holistic care for victims of sexual violence, the main weapon of their civil war.
Asandé is derived from the word ‘Azande’ which has the Zulu meaning; ‘abundance’ and the Congolese meaning; ‘a people who possess much land’. Both meanings are about providing more for the people of the DRC and enlarging the lives of its people is exactly what we want to do!
The ongoing conflict, violence, and displacement in the Congo is often referred to as ‘the most forgotten crisis of our time’. We want to recognize and draw attention to the suffering in this country and provide a response for those who would like to help.
Through Asandé we want to create an alternative future for the DRC by empowering it’s people to overcome some of their biggest challenges.
Every piece sold from one of Asandé's collections supports a women’s project called The Mother’s Union, based in Kinshasa, DRC that teaches women how to rebuild their lives through business.
Through purchasing a piece of jewellery you’re not only recognising a woman’s courageous journey you’re also empowering her to rebuild her life.
