String of Hope: Restoring lives through jewelry
We love jewelry, and we love the women of Northern Uganda. Life Beads was established in 2012 to empower women and improve their lives and community. Through the creation of jewelry, these women are given the opportunity for sustainable living to provide for their families. Each piece of jewelry is unique and handmade by Ugandan artists.
When purchasing Life Beads you not only get a beautiful piece of handmade jewelry, but also helping to break a cycle of poverty. Every woman who crafts Life Beads earns a consistent monthly income, enabling them to send their children to school, provide food and a home for their families, and pay for healthcare when necessary.
Life Beads is proud to partner with the work of Abaana’s Hope, a comprehensive family village in the Kinene community of Northern Uganda. The women who create Life Beads live in the Abaana’s Hope community.
Life Beads empowers women by training them to create unique pieces of jewelry and to restore the lives of women in Northern Uganda by teaching them about the one true God who empowers, creates and restores life for everyone.
By purchasing jewelry from Life Beads you are joining Abaana’s Hope to help empower and bring hope to the women who hand make each piece. All proceeds from your purchase go directly back into the Life Beads program and to the artists who create each piece of jewelry.
