Got old/broken/unwanted jewelry?

Necklaces Save Lives!
Necklaces Save Lives!


We can do a lot with old/broken jewelry.  Who would think that broken costume jewelry could be used to save lives? It does.  Hundreds of people have mailed us or given us their old/broken costume jewelry.  We recycle all of the pieces—the beads, clasps, and any other materials.

Our volunteers take this completely unique jewelry to combine with Ugandan beads. The beads are purchased from Ugandan women. Every piece of jewelry is as unique as the kids who sleep under our nets. Over 90% of the funds that NETwork Against Malaria raises comes from selling this handmade jewelry which is made by USA volunteers. 

Using this method, we have purchased over 15,000 nets for children in Uganda and helped prevent them from avoidable sickness and death.  If you would like to get involved making jewelry, selling jewelry, donating beads please let us know (networkagainstmalaria@gmail.com).
