This necklace contains three strands of long paper beads connected by small paper beads

Each triple strand necklace measures approximately 23" inches and features an easy-to-use snap clasp.

Each paper bead is hand rolled, glued and finished with 5 coats of a non-toxic varnish.

This item was designed and produced by Rita Nabinoba, an HIV-positive widow. Rita is part of our partner Ugandan initiative, The Namugongo Good Samaritan Project (NGSP*) dedicated to providing services such as health education, HIV/AIDS counseling & entrepreneurship and trade skill training.

Devoted to her four young children, Rita perfected the skill of bead making and has saved enough money to rent a larger house, cultivate a spacious garden, and buy a pig. Her resourcefulness has served her well: she not only sustains her family on her garden's produce but also sells the vegetables. For added income, the pig is studded out for a fee to the farm neighbors.

Rita credits this organization with giving her the courage to seize opportunities she never would have considered previously. She is one of our most hard-working and motivated women in our program.
