Blogging from A-Z • U

U is for Uganda...

Every now and again, something pops into your inbox that you aren't expecting.  Often those emails are spam or scams.  Sometimes though, something genuine shows up in your inbox....

A couple weeks ago, a woman reached out to me and simply asked, can you help.  To be more specific, she told me she was a social worker in Uganda, working with women and girls who make beads to earn money. She said, "I see you work with beads, and I'm wondering if you will help me spread the word."  Sure! Why not?   

CHILD, her non-profit organization, "was born out of the desire to address the socio-economic challenges faced by women and girls in Nakaseke District."

They are making lovely beads in Uganda of wonderful colors, shapes, and sizes!  
If you are interested in supporting the community that CHILD serves, you can order beads on their website.  I am ordering a half kilo this week!!  I can't wait to see what comes in my package!  There's a lot of beads in a half kilo so I see a challenge/blog hop in the future with these beads....
