About Our Cause

KANZI® donates a portion of our proceeds to Pearl Ministries, a non-profit based in Birmingham, AL.

Pearl Ministries

Pearl Ministries partners with individuals, families and churches to help orphans and vulnerable children in Uganda, the Pearl of Africa, through gospel-centered, holistic development of family and community in partnership with indigenous ministries and churches. To find more information about Pearl Ministries, visit their website at www.PearlMinistries.org.

Pearl Ministries has several initiatives which help support their work in Uganda. KANZI® generously donates products towards two specific initiatives, Ornaments4Orphans and African Jewelry Parties.


Ornaments4Orphans is a seasonal fundraiser designed to bless orphans and vulnerable children through the celebration of Christmas. Ornaments4Orphans invites individuals and organizations to participate in spreading “glad tidings of great joy” to children in Uganda by sponsoring an Ornaments4Orphans tree at their church, school, business or home event. Each tree is decorated with several varieties of beautiful African Christmas ornaments donated to Ornaments4Orphans by KANZI®. Individuals and families can contribute to the lives of Ugandan children by purchasing an ornament from the tree. Each ornament is available for a donation of $10. Proceeds support Pearl Ministries.

Jewelry Parties

Jewelry Parties are a year round way to partner with the work of Pearl Ministries. When you host a Jewelry Party you give others a special opportunity to shop unique KANZI® merchandise. With each sale of colorfully crafted paper-beads, metallic earrings and cattle horn bracelets you are also spurring on the work of talented African artisans and providing eager children with food and education. As a Jewelry Party Host you will receive a special gift and exclusive discounts on KANZI® products! To learn how you can host a jewelry party, please click here.
