BeadforLife is an international nonprofit organization, member of the Fair Trade Federation and Provisional Member of the World Fair Trade Organization that works to eradicate extreme poverty by creating bridges of understanding between impoverished Africans and concerned world citizens.
Ugandan women turn colorful recycled paper into beautiful beads and communities in northern Uganda gather shea nuts and press them into shea butter for cosmetics and soaps.
Caring citizens open their hearts, homes, and communities to buy and sell both products.
The paper beaded jewelry and shea butter become income, food, medicine, school fees, and hope. It is a small miracle that enriches us all.
"In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love." - Mother Teresa
