Shop Online for Charity - Look Good, Feel Good
At QueenMee Accessories we love jewels, and we love supporting a good cause too.
For us, it feels right that shopping and supporting a charity should go hand in hand.
That's why we always support charity with every purchase. Furthermore - for the month of March 2021, to celebrate International Women's Day, £5 from every piece ordered will be donated to charity (we usually donate 5% of the order value).

More About the Wonder Foundation's Projects
The Wonder Foundation works with local partners in the UK and around the globe. Here are just a few of their projects.
The Tewa Training Centre in Kenya
The Tewa Training Centre empowers marginalised girls and young women through transformative vocational training and mentoring. Tewa is based in Kilifi County, one of the country’s poorest districts, where women have little access to education. With only 48% of girls moving into secondary education, Tewa plays a key role in making education and opportunities accessible to young women and girls in the area.
Wavecrest College in Nigeria
Wavecrest College is a vocational institution that teaches technical and professional skills to young women, many from less privileged backgrounds. Wavecrest helps young women develop the vocational skills they need to enter stable employment and gain financial independence following graduation.
The young women who graduate from the school’s vocational hospitality training programmes increase their family’s income by at least 50% when they start working. The increase in their income is transformative. It gives these young women confidence and the power to plan better futures.
Lycée Liziba in Democratic Republic of the Congo
Lycée Liziba offers high-quality education for girls in Kinshasa with few opportunities. They raise girls’ aspirations to continue their studies so that they can have good opportunities in the future. The school engages the girls’ families to create a supportive environment for their personal development.
In a country where millions of girls are out of school, projects like these are key to educating the next generation. With little resources, the government is not in a position to offer quality education.
The Baytree Centre in the UK
Baytree Centre is a social inclusion charity for women and girls based in the heart of Brixton, London. Those who access the centre face multiple barriers to inclusion, for example lack of English language skills, inability to access employment opportunities, poverty, and discrimination.
All projects rely on 1–1 mentoring, offering support in overcoming personal difficulties. Women and girls develop confidence and plan specific steps to build futures for themselves and their families.
