Traditionally Malas are used as prayer beads. Our 5 Mala bracelets: LOVE, AMAHORO (PEACE), RESILIENCE , TRANSCENDENCE and UBUNTU 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, unity and compassion.
The Ubuntu Mala symbolizes unity among humanity. Now more than ever we must find the strength, courage and emotional balance to unite humankind. The word "Ubuntu" is an old African saying that translates as "I Am Because We Are."
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:
Lava Stone, a stone which symbolizes strength, courage and stability.
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.
