The Akazi Project
Akazi was built out of necessity.
In July of 2017, Akazi founders Megan Malone & Hunter Lambert were brought together on a charity cycling trip through Malawi, Africa. Riding through the country, they merged their passion for public health and building equity for women into a greater cause; developing a platform that empowers, educates, and employs women.
As they rode 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.
