Traditionally Malas are used as prayer beads. Our Mala bracelets each represent a prayer for our women in Rwanda and for anyone who seeks the power to heal, to rise above and to live with serenity and compassion.
The AMAHORO Mala symbolizes peace. In Rwanda, the word "Amahoro" is used as a greeting and an offering of peace to a neighbor or loved one. The bracelet is made by women in India who have no other employable skills or economic opportunities. Your purchase provides them with a job.
The mala contains healing elements of:
Turquoise, a stone used for cultivating serenity and peace, relieving stress and bringing focus back to the heart center.
Sandalwood, a sacred wood used for cultivating mental clarity and emotional balance.
We chose the name in accordance with the Mala's healing properties and in honor of the path of peace the women have chosen in the face of so many struggles.
100% of profits support the project in Rwanda.
**Due to stone size variants these mala bracelets run slightly larger than the others in our shop.
