ANNIE HAAK DESIGNS has launched the Chiwawatala Collection in collaboration with non – profit organisation, Sausage Tree Charity. The collection designed by Lucinda Chignell, founder of the charity, includes two adjustable pendant necklaces and two friendship bracelets in 14ct plated gold and 925 Sterling silver. The design features the Adinkra, the African symbol for strength, chosen by Lu to represent the charity’s mission.
Sausage Tree Charity’s projects, located in Zambia, aims to educate local children with practical training, schooling and awareness of the environment to lead sustainable and successful lives, in a community where infrastructure is poor. Their work, operated purely on a voluntary basis, has raised over £333,000 since commencing their mission in 2001. The projects have developed school buildings, houses for local teachers and wells to ensure safe drinking water for local communities.
Managing Director, Annie says,
‘I’m incredibly proud of my niece as founder of Sausage Tree Charity. To offer support, education and guidance to the younger generation is so key in their development and I’m delighted to be part of Sausage Tree’s journey.’
50% of all profits made from this collection will be donated directly to Sausage Tree Charity. The Chiwawatala Collection is available to purchase via the ANNIE HAAK website.
