BeadForLife

Bead For Life


     I recently heard about a great company offering opportunities to people that otherwise may not have them and I am going to share their amazing story with you.

BeadForLife Creates Sustainable opportunities for women to life their families out of extreme poverty by connecting people worldwide in a circle of exchange that enriches everyone.

   BeadForLife teaches women how to provide for themselves, their families and ever their communities. The
goal of BeadForLife is to put money into the hands of their members and to create sustainable income streams that they can depend on for years to come. BeadForLife provides entrepreneurial or agri-business training, help their members open savings accounts and award business grants. They even adapt their core model to fit the needs of each of their regions: Kampala, Iganga, and Otuke

     I think empowering women to take control of their lives is amazing, BeadForLife provides opportunities for the women that they may never had, had otherwise. All the members come from different backgrounds, all are heartbreaking, and touching. These amazing women over come unbelievable odds to make life for them and their families better. 74% of members in the BeadForLife program actually start their own business while in the program! I think that is just amazing.

     BeadForLife has a store which you can purchase the items the women make, it helps support the program and the women in the program. It is so important to keep programs like this running! If you have a few minutes, are looking for that perfectly unique gift, or want to do some good today by donating and getting an amazing item in return, please check out their store!
