meet the apprentices

Our apprenticeship program economically empowers the apprentices through training them on
theoretical business knowledge and essential technical jewelry making skills. Our focus is on
brass, gold and gold plated jewelry, as well as brass casting from spent shell casings in line with our peacekeeping efforts.

It doesn’t stop there! The apprentices are integrated into CODE Femmes, which is a survivor-led
cooperative in the DRC. As members of the cooperative, they have easy market access and are
able to utilize the fully equipped training and manufacturing studio to create the finished products.
