Approximately 430 unique, hand rolled, individual beads that are about 1 to 1 1/4 inches in length.
These beads are hand rolled from recycled paper by Grandmothers in southwestern Uganda who are caring for AIDS Orphans.
Your purchase of these beads supports one of the 7,004 grandmothers whom we partner with. All profits made are used to fund Grandmother Training Programs that teach valuable skills such as parenting, nutrition, health, finance, and gardening.
Thank you for becoming part of a growing circle of people who are helping impoverished Ugandan women rise out of poverty. These women are caring for an average of 7 orphans at a time. Selling woven baskets, bowls, trivets, hats, purses, paper beads and paper bead jewelry empowers them to support themselves and the children who rely on them for food, shelter, and loving care.
