Highlight On Gem Legacy – How We Give Again

Gem Legacy X Gem Breakfast

Every year we donate a portion of all Gem Breakfast profits to Gem Legacy and its initiatives. Their mission speaks to us on a deep level – using gems to empower people and providing them with education, supplies, and infrastructure to build the businesses and lives they deserve.

Whether local independent jewelry designers and gem cutters or artisan miners in East Africa – we will always join the artisans of this world. Through #supportingsmall we are all growing and expanding together.

“Gemstones have a remarkable power to change lives and affect the world when we all work together.” – Gem Legacy

Gem Legacy is helping to finance two East African schools and a children’s home for orphans. Their initiatives raise funds for projects and supplies such as building materials, books, teacher’s housing, toilets and sanitary supplies, toys and games, electricity, beds, and food for lunch.

In one of the Gem Legacy-funded schools, students now have over 90% pass rates for state exams, compared to 10% in recent years.
