Bigger than Beads

Bigger than Beads- Creating Hope from Paper

Bigger than Beads is a WIN/WIN sustainable micro-business in the slums of Masese, Uganda supported by the caring Americans of HELP International/Uganda. Sustainable living is a reachable goal for ninety women who work in three bead cooperatives with established leaders to create and sell jewelry and purses from recycled paper. 

Hope flows as Mothers’ hands craft unique products. Children flourish in the HELP Primary School built from the proceeds of accessory sales in the United States.

“We can feed our families. Our children receive an education. We have hope for their futures.” -Lukia
