M&V CREATIONS EUROPE LIMITED
M&V Creations Europe Ltd is a company with social, environmental and economical objectives. It created its wholly owned subsidiary M&V Creations Nigeria Ltd with its main office in Lagos. Together they put up a development project that looks at creating high quality jewellery and hiring African women from Poverty Street who are the ones making the jewellery. The objective is to empower these women both socially and economically. Through continuous training and monitoring, we can assure top quality jewellery items with special attention to the finishing.
Amina's is our brand name. It comes from an ancient African queen who lived in Hausaland in the northern part of Nigeria back in the 16th Century. Amina represents every woman around the world and our collection of unique jewellery models. Our website is under construction but you can already view and buy models on http://www.Artmajeur.com/mvcreations or contact us at email@example.com for a catalogue & price list.
If you want to receive news from our latest models or if you want to know more on our development project please send us your details at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We started our project on a small scale as we are continuously looking for funds. Our jewellery prototypes are continuously created in Europe with the production based in Lagos, Nigeria.
So far, we have 50 women from Poverty Street that are ready to work for us. We call them craftswomen. We are busy dealing with Micro Financing institutions to help these women get the correct equipment and tools in order to do their work safely and comfortably.
With the help of Lagos State Government, more precisely the Ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation (WAPA), community centres have been put to our disposal as a main place of work for our craftswomen.
