SEEDS FOR CHANGE FOUNDATION
OUT TO CHANGE THE WORLD
One of the only constants in this world. Things will always be moving, morphing, growing, developing, withering away, and aging. These changes can be for good or for bad. We, as a company, have a duty to influence change and make it for good, development, and sustainability.
That’s why we have created our very own foundation, Seeds for Change, and dedicated it to be a force for good in our world. Seeds for Change receives a monetary percentage of each box purchased at Rain International and puts it toward a good cause.
“GIVING SINGLE MOTHERS JOBS, EDUCATION,
HEALTH CARE, AND OTHER OPPORTUNITIES TO
HELP THE CYCLE OF POVERTY END”
we’ve been working, and this is what we’ve been doing…
The fight to improve the world is only won one way: together. Musana has been one of our closest allies as we wage the war of humanitarian aid. And, we’ve been making some impressive headway.
1/2 an acre of perfect land was purchased in a remote village of Uganda. That land was cleared and leveled to service as the foundation of Musana’s workshop, a multi-functional space. It will not only serve as a home to the artisans who create Musana’s jewelry, but will also be a tourist destination, selling their jewelry and special smoothies and improving the economy of the village.
Musana is also focusing their efforts on another deeply-rooted problem. Families in Uganda face extreme poverty, which severely limits their capabilities and creates heart-breaking situations. Many families with disabled children do not have the means to care for them. Facilities have been set up to assist those children, but many are turning into orphanages, finding children left on their doorstep almost daily. In a fight to correct this, Musana’s workshop will also act as an ability center, giving families of disabled children hope and a place to learn and grow together.
We understand that our efforts are but a drop in the ocean, but they matter. They change lives, they lift hearts, and we hope they inspire others to help as well. We will continue our efforts in order to impact as many lives as we can with goodness and wellness.
TREES FOR THE FUTURE
Dirt floors and grass huts provide the workspace of their Executive Team. Empowering, creating opportunities, and developing provide them with their motivation. Musana International is one of the rare companies in the world that practices charity more than they preach it. We have teamed up with them to, not only help them in their service-oriented journey, but to multiply our own efforts of changing this world one person at a time. We’re featuring their “Lucky Seeds” collection of jewelry and each purchase goes towards a great cause.
We have paired up with other, like-minded organizations as well, like Trees for the Future and Help International to continue fostering an environment of change for good in the world. We have chosen to become the change that we want to see, and are watching the fruits of our service blossom all across the globe.
Rain and Seeds For Change have paired up with Trees for the Future in order to continue to push goodness onward and upward. Trees for the Future, just as its name implies, is a non-profit organization that changes the world one tree at a time. They are a foundation that is focused on helping the world and its people. They have already planted trees in thousands of communities, which stretch across 19 countries. Our goal is to help them extend their roots further and deeper than ever before.
Musana International is special. Each moving part of their business model works and acts like a self-sustaining humanitarian project. They produce beautiful, world-class jewelry, but they truly are much more than the products they sell. Musana International believes in the kind of deep-rooted change that pulls entire cultures out of a cycle of poverty. They’ve set up their workshops in places like Uganda, given single mothers jobs, education, health care, and other opportunities to help the cycle of poverty end.
