Batey Girls is a thought-provoking example of an organization that offers mindfully-made products. This jewelry company was established by the nonprofit organization; Batey Rehab Project, to provide economic opportunities for women and girls who are at risk of sex trafficking and domestic violence in the Batey communities of the Dominican Republic, and throughout that nation. It was inspired by the true story of a nonprofit founder who witnessed parents selling their teenage daughters for sex, in order to feed their family. It was created by the Batey community women and girls to provide an opportunity to begin new lives, and break free from the cycle of poverty. As a result, it’s a brand you can be proud to wear or gift, knowing that you have supported the empowerment of women and girls both internationally and here in the USA. Every purchase empowers and employs.
Their beautiful jewelry is artisan-crafted from raw material. Selections include pieces that highlight larimar, one of the most beautiful gemstones in the world.
