Self-Sufficiency Springs From A Handful Of Beads


Here at Billions Rising, we've always been focused on self-reliance, so there are some organizations that will always hold a special place in our hearts. One of these is Bead For Life in Kampala, Uganda.

Bead For Life started as a humble bead-making business for local women; today they've expanded to teach women how to create their own businesses of all kinds, helping themselves out of poverty along the way. And they've got an incredible track record: fully 89% of their graduates become business owners within two years. Our Board President Janet Lipsey has had the pleasure of visiting their team in Uganda in the past, and hopes to make the trip again in the coming year.
