Buy a Necklace and Help Lift a Woman Out of Poverty
These recycled paper bead necklaces are crafted by women in northern Uganda and southern Sudan. The necklaces are rolled from long strips of colorful magazine pages, calendars, pamphlets, and cereal boxes. The beads are glued and lightly varnished with an acrylic based sealant. 100% of all profits return to fund women's programs (tailoring school, literacy education, anti-sex trafficking initiatives, micro-credit loans, and mosquito net distributions) in southern Sudan and northern Uganda.
