Your Purchase Makes a Difference

Your Gift

Do you like making a difference when you buy something, and still getting what you want, like a hat or a t-shirt? So often I've found that I'd buy a product to benefit a cause and it would land in a drawer after a few wears? We support GHLiaisons a non-profit based in Uganda and Ekam USA supporting children in India. The women and children they support do not create products for you or me. They are farmers and children of farmers.  A Necklace for Me shops for jewelry from around the world that meets our quality criteria and bring these to your doorstep in the shortest possible timeframe. 

Each sale from our stores helps give girls and women in Africa a fighting chance. They cannot own property and are targets of gender based violence, like rape. We educated girls in rural communities and give rural women marketers and farmers free no-interest loans for their market stall.  In India, we support the Save a Child Project. 

Everything you buy from our Richer Me stores helps those in need.

    INDIA

    Ekam serves women and children of southern India. Ekam was Founded by Dr. Sailakshmi Balijepally who started her career working in government hospitals as a pediatrician. There she observed great inequality in the healthcare system. She said that day after day she had to inform parents that their children were critically ill or required expensive treatments and procedures, knowing that many could not even afford three meals a day.

    Ekam Foundation, a not-for-profit was born. Today, Ekam has implemented numerous projects to improve accessibility through improved health, livelihoods, clean environment and good governance. They are doing this through projects like these.
