Featured Charity:Lawyers without Borders

At Giving Through Jewelry 10% of all sales are donated to a charity of the buyers choice. We realize that there are a lot of charities to choose from so we would like to highlight some of our favorites. This month’s featured charity is

Lawyers without Borders. Check out our FACEBOOK page at the beginning of each month to see how much was donated.


Their mission is to advance global rule of law, build capacity and integrity in the world’s justice sectors and support transitions and development. They engage with lawyers and judges dedicated to pro bono service and integrate them into initiatives that directly or indirectly serve the underserved, protect the disadvantaged and promote human rights.

Their objective is to develop programs that improve access to justice guided by a mandate of neutrality and independence.


LWOB is committed to practical, concrete programming that has an observable and measurable impact and results. They strive to make our programming interactive, engaging and effective.

  • Trial Advocacy Training

Get Involved

Volunteers are vital to the functioning of Lawyers Without Borders. We rely on the help of talented individuals dedicated to promoting the rule of law across the world. We accept United States and international volunteers. A law degree is not an essential requirement for a volunteer position with LWOB.

Volunteer opportunities vary based on our current projects and activities but are generally limited. We occasionally have the need for assistance on administrative or research projects. Volunteers with language skills such as Arabic, Dari, Spanish, or Kiswahili, are a key group. We do not generally send volunteers to do projects in the field.

If you believe your skills could be of use to our organization, please fill out this Volunteer Intake Form. We will contact you should any volunteer opportunities arise.

Your interest in our work is very much appreciated, and we encourage you to support us through a donation!
