Welcome to Chureca

Hi there! I just got back from Nicaragua and bought a little jewelry from a cooperative of women who are working hard to find new income. They live in what's called "La Chureca," one of the city dumps of Managua, Nicaragua, and have survived for years by collecting and selling trash. Four months ago they started making jewelry, with the help of Manna Project International, and selling it in Nicaragua. I bought a small inventory and am selling that here in this online store - browse around and buy what you like! Every dollar of profit goes back into buying more jewelry from them or into donating to the programs that are assisting them. Let me know what you think! So - look beautiful and feel beautiful at the same time, knowing that your purchase is directly helping some very deserving women and their families. Happy shopping! More »
