The Akazi Project
Akazi was built out of necessity.
In July of 2017, riding through the country, founder Megan Malone merged her passion for public health and building equity for women into a greater cause; developing a platform that empowers, educates, and employs women.
Riding past the lake towns and into the northern-mountain regions, they couldn't help but notice gem filled trails. With one glance at the rocks that filled an outstretched hand and another glance at each other - The Akazi Project began.
Style, Quality & the Big Idea
Akazi creates meaningful, hand-made product that meets the fashion-savvy woman's accessory expectations, while establishing a force for good that trickles into communities we work directly in.
Each piece is handmade here in San Diego, California & our profits get directly invested into creating genuine change in Malawi - the warm heart of Africa.
Our business model follows a one-for-one model, where one piece of Akazi jewelry purchased provides life changing cervical cancer treatment at our women's health clinic in rural Malawi.
