Project Description

Our Artisan Partners in Uganda believe the long-term solution of job creation will break the cycle of poverty. By offering the opportunity to earn fair wages, this cooperative empowers women to invest in food, shelter, and education.

What We Love

Our Artisan Partners in Uganda use recycled paper to craft beads, then paint and string them into gorgeous necklaces and bracelets.

Fortunate’s Story

True to her name, Fortunate is a beam of inspiration. Armed with a passion for knowledge, she is always educating herself by reading, listening to the news, and engaging in lively conversations about politics.

Making jewelry has changed Fortunate’s life by allowing her to earn money for college. She dreams of studying politics so she can improve the high rate of youth unemployment in Uganda. She even has a plan for how she can achieve this through increasing international trade!
