Host a BeadforLife Marketplace. Transform lives.

What’s a BeadforLife Marketplace?
A BeadforLife Marketplace provides an opportunity for individuals and organizations who want to fight extreme poverty to easily get involved and make a difference. Hosts help spread the BeadforLife story through events that showcase the handcrafted and unique products created by the women enrolled in our programs.
 
How does it Work
 
In-Person Events: Set up an in-person BeadforLife Marketplace at your home, office, church, school or local market and directly sell our handcrafted Ugandan paper beaded jewelry

& Northern Ugandashea butter at absolutely no cost to you. We’ll send you everything you need, including inventory, and support you through the whole process—from accepting credit card payments to getting the word out to returning unsold inventory.

 
Online: In just a few minutes, setup an online BeadforLife Marketplace where you’ll have your own website storefront with an individualized link that you can share through email, Facebook, Twitter or your own website. All sales through that link count toward your fundraiser goal. No inventory, payments or presentations to do - just simply spread the word!
 
Combo: Or better yet, do both. You can even make it a fundraiser to support your other favorite non-profit organization. 
 
What Kind Of Impact Will You Have?
Through our hosts, we have been able to reach 1.2 million people and raise millions of dollars directly contributing to our incredible impact over the last decade. Your BeadforLife Marketplace makes a huge difference:
  • $210 covers training for one woman in our Street Business School, helping her expand her existing small business
  • $375 covers one woman enrolled in our Beading Program receiving numeracy training, entrepreneurial training, and business coaching to start their own small businesses
  • $630 covers an oxen and plow for one family, which can equal a 7x increase in their income from farming
  • $1115 sponsors one girl for one year of secondary school, including tuition, room & board, supplies and a week of Empowerment Camp
