Beautiful Ugandan Paper Bead Jewelry for a Purpose
All jewelry featured in our Etsy store have been uniquely created by women living in the Masese III, a poverty-stricken slum community outside of Jinja, Uganda.
The vast majority of the women are single mothers who have been widowed, abandoned or displaced by the wars in northern Uganda.
The jewelry is crafted from recycled papers, hand-rolled into beads, varnished for protection and strung together.
The women earn fair wages for jewelry they make, providing them with a reliable source of income to support their families.
In addition, 100% of the profits from the jewelry sales go back into the Masese III community through support given to Bethel Junior School, the local elementary school, that provides free education to many children living in the Masese III slums.
Every purchase makes a difference in the quality of life these women can enjoy with their children. Monies earned from this Fair-Trade initiative dignify the women to afford rent, buy food, and pay school fees.
