Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We have exciting news! We are launching Gem Legacy, a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to what we’ve been doing in Africa for over 20 years, birthed by some friends who traveled to Africa with us and believe in the work we can do together. Our mission will continue to be supporting education, vocational training, and local economies in East African mining communities.
In our combined 57 trips to Africa, we have met thousands of people in East Africa’s remote villages and bush mines where gems have had a remarkable influence on their lives. Gems bring HOPE, make a DIFFERENCE, and leave a lasting CHANGE… a timeless legacy. It is time to raise up an army to support the husbands, wives, daughters, sons, brothers, sisters, granddaughters, and grandsons of gemstones. They are the pioneers, the unsung heroes who walk a long, arduous journey filled with days, weeks, months, and even years to bring gems to light. Our legacy is to thank them for their life’s work.
As partners of Roger Dery Gem Design, we are so excited to share this news with you. If you’d like to follow along on the journey, please subscribe to receive Gem Legacy email updates or follow us on social media!
Roger, Ginger, and Rachel Dery, GG
