This is a unique statement piece, versatile and colorful. Shop for recycled paper beads and explore how easy it is to help African women.

This braided, long and small paper bead necklace was designed by Christine Namusisi.

Christine married at the age of 16 and has three children.  To support their family, her and her husband made and sold bricks.  With the money that they had saved, Christine proposed buying a plot of land where they would construct a home.  Instead, her husband took that money and left to marry another woman.

With no education, and no financial support from her ex-husband, Christine struggled to provide for her children.  Therefore she joined our partner initiative The NamuGongo Good Samaritan Project (NGSP*), where she was taught trade, craft, and business skills.  Since learning the art of bead-making, Christine happily creates unique jewelry and is a gardener to earn supplemental income. She and her children are now living happy and healthy lives!
