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".

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."

Uganda is the country where AfriBeads are made. AfriBeads is unique recycled paper bead jewellery and baskets made by a group of talented artisans in Kampala. Uganda is best known for its wildlife and beautiful scenery. The reality of Africa is a little different fo the women of AfriBeads and this video shares the story of their Uganda. We see the simple houses where they live and their daily lives, and hear the story of how a local Ugandan teacher gathered these impoverished women together to teach them to make and sell beautiful paper bead jewellery. These women now are happy because they can feed their children, send them to school and are learning new skills. They are gaining independence to care for themselves and their families.
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
