Sisters Wana and Hila Limar's journey toward establishing their own jewelry brand took an indirect path. Their connection with the non-profit organization Visions for Children played a pivotal role in this endeavor.
Wana has been actively engaged with the organization for numerous years, contributing her talents as a moderator, influencer, and creative mind.
Meanwhile, Hila has served as the chairwoman of the board since 2018. Based in Hamburg, this organization is dedicated to enhancing educational conditions and standards in schools situated within crisis and conflict zones, with a special focus on Afghanistan – the Limar sisters' place of origin. As their involvement deepened, they pondered how best to provide educational opportunities for young girls in Afghanistan once they completed their schooling.
