Since 2004 BeadforLife has been making a difference in the lives of countless hardworking and intelligent women of Uganda by helping create a market for their socially responsible jewelry. These talented artisans are trained in creating beautiful handcrafted paper beads from recycled paper, turning them into necklaces, bracelets and earrings. The result is an international grassroots movement to overcome extreme poverty, one bead at a time.
The socially responsible jewelry from BeadforLife features exquisite designs, vibrant colors and each piece presents a fabulously unique fashion statement for the wearer. If you prefer to make your own socially responsible jewelry, you can also purchase loose beads in a variety of shapes and colors. Shop the BeadforLife online store or host your own BeadParty, where you can enjoy the company of your friends and family while also making a difference in the lives of women in need. Those who purchase or donate to BeadforLife receive the honor of being part of the “Bead Circle”.
The ultimate goal of BeadforLife’s socially responsible jewelry is to help the artisans become independent and capable of supporting themselves. To achieve this, BeadforLife assists members in launching their own small businesses or in developing new revenue streams through entrepreneurial training, savings accounts, and business funds. The net profits are also used to sponsor Community Development projects in health, vocational training, affordable housing, and business development, not only for their members, but other impoverished people living in Uganda. BeadforLife encourages you to purchase their unique socially responsible jewelry and help them eradicate poverty one bead at a time.
