We bring you our Strong collection in partnership with KYUP! Project.

These special edition Lizunova necklace and bracelet are available to buy in support of KYUP! Project, a social change initiative working on breaking cycles of domestic and peer to peer violence. The butterfly shape of the pendant symbolises the transformation girls and women go through once they learn life protection skills and gain the confidence to speak up and share their opinion in difficult situations. All proceeds go to KYUP! Project’s award-winning violence prevention education program.

Established in 2013, the KYUP! Project was founded on Melanie Thomas's passion for self worth and self-defence. It began after Mel was awarded the Layne Beachley Aim for the Stars Foundation grant. Mel is a writer, speaker, media commentator and mother of two children with over 15 years martial arts experience in Hapkido, the Korean art of self-defence.

More than 10,000 students and young women have participated in the programs since 2013. These programs are designed to equip girls with the skills to deal with situations that don’t feel right. Girls learn about intuition, awareness and the power of her voice – she can turn around negative self-talk, speak out for herself and others and shout out in self-protection. The program shares practical self-protection techniques every girl and woman should know.
