Fair Jewelry is one of the Young Focus projects that helps students who lack financial support from their parents or guardians. This project helps a lot of students who are in need. We are given an allowance for making jewelry. It is hard when you make a piece of jewelry for the first time, but it’s exciting to make jewelry and I’m happy after I have finished an item. And it’s even more exciting making jewelry I’ve designed myself. I would like to say: “Thank you and God bless you. You help me and other students a lot by buying the jewelry we’ve made.”
