“I am a 28-year-old mother of 1 girl. Beading is not only my main source of income but also my passion: I enjoy making beautiful beaded products for international clients! I joined Ushindi Women Group last year and, thanks to this and the previous orders, I improved my skills and learnt how to manage my income”.
Alice Wangala, 28 years old
“I have always lived in a slum, which comes with the challenge of few job opportunities. I earn my daily income as a cleaner or doing beadwork, which gives me a far better sense of purpose and allows me to care of my 3 children and my family. I really en- joyed working on the lapis and yellow bracelets, and I hope for more orders”.
