Around the 'Net - Bead for Life


Bead for Life is a poverty eradication project connecting people in Uganda and North America to work together for the mutual benefit of all.

Bead for Life believes true and sustained change can happen when we are willing to work together with our African neighbors to find solutions to extreme poverty.

Bead for Life eradicates extreme poverty by creating bridges of understanding between hard working and impoverished Africans and North Americans who want to create a world that works for all. Ugandan women turn colorful recycled paper, into beautiful beads. This beauty becomes income, food, medicine, school fees, and hope. It is a small miracle. Our members are women with children living on less than two dollars a day. Many have fled the war in Northern Uganda. Others live with HIV or other serious health challenges. They are incredibly welcoming, hard working, resilient, and creative.

As a grassroots organization, Bead for Life believes citizens in developed countries care about the problem of extreme poverty and welcome an opportunity to alleviate it. In our experience, all benefit from this exchange.
You have to look at these beads. They are so pretty with vivid colors. You can do something good and you get something very original for your scrapbooking and crafting.
