Olivela started when Founder and CEO Stacey Boyd joined Malala Yousafzai on a visit to refugee camps in Kenya and Rwanda. There she met amazing girls with extraordinary stories of overcoming poverty and war and escaping forced marriage to pursue their educations. It became crystal clear that while talent is equally distributed, opportunity is not. It was from that realization that a new kind of retailer was born, one with giving back built into every, single transaction.
When you shop your favorite designer fashion and beauty brands at Olivela, we then give twenty percent of the proceeds of anything you purchase directly to one of our partner children’s charities. And at absolutely no additional cost to you.
