ABOUT SEEME 
SeeMe is a fair trade certified luxury brand and social enterprise that strives to improve the life of women who have been victims of violence. It employs women, usually single mothers, who have been shunned by their patriarchal societies and, once out of their shelter homes, could not find a job to provide for themselves and their children. Through trainings that later result in employment, SeeMe women are empowered, they learn a craft and eventually earn a steady monthly salary. 

ABOUT UNiTE 
UNiTE is a United Nations campaign aiming at ending all types of violence against women through law and policy enforcement, mobilization and partnerships. In fact, UNiTE has put together a big network of women’s organizations, youth groups, men, media people, government representatives as well celebrities and artists to support the campaign. Orange is the color of Elimination of Violence Against Women. 

ABOUT THE GLOBAL #16Days CAMPAIGN 
25 November marks the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and the beginning of The Official 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Campaign, which runs until 10 December, Human Rights Day. The campaign links the movement to end violence against women and girls with the human rights movement.

FINE LINE JEWELLERY LAUNCHED DURING PFW

For SS16, SeeMe launches its first fine jewellery line.

The iconic SeeMe heart has been transformed into a precious piece thanks to the ancestral skills of Jacques Levon, a renewed Armenian jeweller from Bourj Hammoud in Beirut. The collection is conceived with the Dutch designer Peter Bedner.

It was born within the UN agency UNIDO's project: ‘Developing of clusters in cultural and creative industries in the Southern Mediterranean’, funded by the EU and the Italian development cooperation. Final aim is to support employment and the formal private sector as well as promoting regional cooperation in the Southern Mediterranean region.
