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...
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
Uganda is the country where AfriBeads are made. AfriBeads markets unique recycled paper bead jewellery and baskets on behalf of 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 for 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.
