Paper beads

Winning women-Mama washindi

This is the name of a women's group in Gulu, which had already joined forces during the rebel war. The majority of women are widows and HIV positive.

The aim of this group is to build their own existence by making handcrafted products.

The name is a program and a symbol for defeating poverty and misery on its own.
With the proceeds, the women can feed their families, pay their own children's school fees and even buy their own piece of land.

Through their years of experience in the production of paper jewelry and other products such as bags, placemats and much more, it is possible to offer high quality.
With every purchase of such a lovingly crafted item you will help to give dignity to the lives of these women.


Our current project


With your help, the kitchen and the dormitories could be completed. Thank you so much to everyone who was there for us!

A simple community school is currently needed. Not all children in the surrounding villages can attend our school because the distances are too great and the paths too dangerous. Again and again you can encounter elephants, buffalos or other animals that cross to the Nile to drink water. For this reason we decided to build a primary school with four classrooms in one of the villages so that all children can go to school.

Such a building with four classrooms costs about 12,000 euros. A lot of thanks to a generous donation from Denmark, we were able to credit 3,500 euros. So we are only missing 8,500 euros.

A big thank you to everyone who makes this project possible. You can donate directly here.

Who we are and what we do


Vision


"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."
(Jak. 1:27)
