  • 22STARS: the story behind our Ugandan Recycled Paper Jewellery

    22STARS is a Dutch initiative founded by Stella Romana Airoldi, who has a Master Degree in Public International Law and Human Rights & Democratization. In 2009 Stella visited Uganda to do research for her thesis about girl child soldiers within the Lord Resistance Army. That is how her love for the people of this country started. During a church service she met Pastor David Wafula who introduced her to women living in the Acholi Quarter of Kampala; a camp for internally displaced persons who fled from the war in Northern Uganda many years ago. Impressed by the artistic skills of the ladies to make beautiful jewellery out of recycled paper and fascinated by their stories, Stella decided to use her own creativity to help them design, market and sell their products on the international market...

  • The Village The Beads Built: BeadforLife

    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

Impressed by the artistic skills of the ladies to make beautiful jewellery out of recycled paper and fascinated by their stories, Stella decided to use her own creativity to help them design, market and sell their products on the international market. As 22STARS founder, Stella has a Passion for Fashion, a Mind for Business and a Heart for the World! 22STARS places utmost importance on high quality. Our jewellery is super light in weight, waterproof and comfortable to wear. It is inspired by the latest fashion trends as picked up by early birds bloggers and it-girls. Above all we care that all 22STARS items are fabricated in a socially responsible manner that is friendly to the environment. All 22STARS products are handmade from 100% recycled paper by women from the Acholi Quarter in Kampala, Uganda. Our 22STARS designers had to overcome many challenges in their lives. Many of them have fled to Kampala to escape death during the regime of Joseph Kony. Between 1988 and 2006, Joseph Kony terrorized the North of Uganda with his Lord’s Resistance Army, an armed rebel group consisting mainly of child soldiers. At this moment, the LRA is still active in the neighboring countries. Our designers have lost family members, fought against HIV/Aids, had children at a very young age, and received little to no education. But they are all strong women: Survivors, who support and help each other not to let their terrible past rule their future. Every day, our designers form an incredible source of creativity, energy and positive power producing wonderful pieces of jewellery for 22STARS. They are truly inspiring for anyone who wants to reach for the stars. With our collections, 22STARS wants to bring you closer to your heart and show you the stars! By taking part in the 22STARS initiative, our designers have a plan to enter the local and global market and sell their products internationally. They are able to provide their families with housing, education, food, and medical treatment. In addition, part of the 22STARS profit is used in the 22STARS educational program for both our designers and their children. Within the 22STARS education program, they receive English lessons, social support, psychological counselling and health education, but also learn about Income Generating Activities (IGA). Furthermore, 22STARS believes in the power of art to heal and build positive results. For this reason, the 22STARS program sees to esteem building in the form of music, dance and drama classes.
