Fashionista: Mastering the Necklaces and Jewelry Game- Maliaka
Poverty in Africa is said to have a woman's face. BeadforLife is trying to change that by empowering women. In Uganda women turn recycled paper into beautiful colourful jewellery. The beads become income, shelter and hope. Most of the women were displaced from Northern Ugandan because of the war between the LRA and the Ugandan government. Some are HIV/AIDS positive and are the sole provider for their extended families. And for the majority this is the first time they're making money for themselves. The women have pulled themselves out of poverty and some even own small businesses and are homeowners. To date the beads have built a village home to 132 families and growing...have impacted the lives of thousands and have changed generations to come. www.namsink.com

Founded in 2006, the Ugandan American Partnership Organization (UAPO) was created with the goal of "actively participating in Uganda's development through sustainable partnerships that bring Americans and Ugandans together to engage, collaborate, and learn through the love of Jesus". "The Akola Project is one of UAPO's five development initiatives. The project empowers over 200 women to uplift their families and communities through income generating crafts. Sales equip the women with monthly income to provide food, medical care and education for their families. 100% of jewelry profits go back to the women and to facilitating development projects throughout Uganda including the construction of two vocational centers, children's homes and water wells."
