The Bracelet Project: Helping 25 Million Orphans Through Sustainable Fashion

25 million children will be orphaned due to HIV/AIDS by the end of this year. Who will take care of them?

The DO UBuntu Orphan Bracelet Campaign was inspired by the making of the film Angels in the Dust and the plight of orphaned children throughout the world.

The bracelet project is modeled on sustainable development techniques where women are taught how to run their own business, open bank accounts and additional life skills.

Buy a bracelet and support orphaned children around the globe. I love mine and I haven't gone a day without someone making a compliment.

Watch Angels in the Dust, a story of hope and healing in the face of a staggering crisis. It's a story of inspiration, featuring Marion Cloete, a university-trained therapist who— with her husband and three daughters— fearlessly walked away from a privileged life in a wealthy Johannesburg suburb to build Botshabelo, an extraordinary village and school that provides shelter, food, and education to more than 550 South African children.
