Sausage Tree Charity
Today is an exciting day here at ANNIE HAAK HQ as we’re launching the Chiwawatala Collection in collaboration with not-for-profit organidsation, Sausage Tree Charity. Annie’s niece, Lucinda Chignell (Lu) Chairperson and founder of Sausage Tree Charity, designed this unique collection, and 50% of all profits will be donated directly to Sausage Tree Charity.
The Chiwawatala Collection features two adjustable pendant necklaces in 14ct plated gold and 925 Sterling silver, and two friendship bracelets, again in gold and silver, featuring the Adinkra, the African symbol for strength, chosen by Lu to represent the charity’s mission.
Sausage Tree Charity’s projects, located in a remote area of Luangwa Valley, Zambia, aims to educate local children with practical training, schooling and awareness of the environment to lead sustainable and successful lives, in a community where infrastructure is poor. Their work, operated purely on a voluntary basis, has raised over £333,000 since commencing their mission in 2001, leading projects that have developed school buildings, built houses for local teachers and built wells to ensure safe drinking water for local communities.
Annie says ‘I’m incredibly proud of my niece as founder of Sausage Tree Charity. To offer support, education and guidance to the younger generation is so key in their development and I’m delighted to be part of Sausage Tree’s journey.’
The Chiwawatala Collection is available to view here.
