Make a difference, change a life with your paper bead purchase. All profits from beads sales go to our Ugandan women beaders and to projects and programs in the communities where our beader groups are located which we believe will have the most impact on helping the communities and beader group members overcome poverty. Most of our U.S. labor is volunteer. This is not a handout. It is a hand up which allows our beaders to build their own sustainable businesses that they can do in Uganda to support themselves and their families.
