Be Free Revolution Transforms Lives in Kenya
After meeting children in Kenya who were daily victims of sexual violence and extreme poverty, co-founders Britney Christie and Lacey Stluka felt called to do something to alter the devastating cycle of poverty there.
“We started Be Free Revolution to address these problems at the root. We’ve seen the lives of hundreds of kids and families dramatically transformed and cycles of poverty broken,” Lacie said.
Through hunger relief, empowerment, counseling, and the teaching of skills, women, men, and children in Kenya are being changed, one person at a time. Be Free Revolution not only offers the opportunity to sponsor children, and serve on a mission, but they also teach invaluable trade skills so that families can support themselves.
One of these skills is the creation of jewelry. Their beautiful pieces are handcrafted, empowering both the maker, and the wearer, who takes on the responsibility to share that story and spread change worldwide.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Sevenly to create a special edition collection of bracelets,” Britney told Goodfeed. “These beautiful, hand-stamped pieces, called cuffs, are sure to start conversations!”
They feature special Sevenly statements like “People Matter,” “Dream Bigger,” and “Never Give Up.” So this holiday season, consider giving a gift that gives -- and helps change a life. This exclusive line for Sevenly is made by two incredible women, who are refugees from Nepal and Bhutan.
