Elizabeth Carlock Designs

Elizabeth Carlock interned for me in 2005/2006, and not only have I always adored her, but also I am inspired by her continued passion to help others. In the summer of 2009, she launched Elizabeth Carlock Designs. She now travels to Uganda several times per year to volunteer with the AKOLA Project --she helps to train many Ugandan women to make crafts ensuring that they may sustain a consistent income. Elizabeth sells and markets her jewelry designs that these women make, and all the profits made from this collaboration go directly back to the AKOLA Project and other UAPO initiatives. I am planning to go with her on one of her next plan is to volunteer with AKOLA and then to go gorilla trekking in Rwanda! ;)
I will keep you posted!


  1. Thank you for your post, E! You are truly a role model to me and one of my greatest business mentors. Interning for you inspired me to pursue entrepreneurship in jewelry design. I am forever grateful! Hope a trip to Uganda works out this summer!!

    Love, EC
