Beads for Life

I picked this story up via twitter.

Beads For Life is a project of women in Uganda creating jewellry and selling to women in America. Through their crafting, they make money to support themselves.

I won't spoil it by telling you how they make the necklaces, it's very cool.

Favourite quote from a different clip: "I no longer call myself poor" (uttered by a woman we would probably still class as poor)


  1. Wow, thank you for sharing this! I really want some beaded necklaces. I was going to look in some local shops or try to make my own, but this is a great idea, too! They are so beautiful.

  2. Gorgeous video, wow. What a contrast between the women crushing the rocks, and the ones creating beads and dancing, their faces radiant. I agree, very clever way to make the beads too!
