We measure the success of our programs in Uganda by the impact they make in the lives of our members. We measure such outcomes as sustainable income, assets, and school sponsorships.
Last year, we directly served over 2200 women living in urban and rural communities throughout Eastern and Central Uganda.
Last year, we reached almost 10,000 people living in over 2200 households.
74% of our members start a business while in the program.
|Change in Assets
Our graduates are able to spend twice as much on basic needs after their time in our program, as they were before entering it. Over a year after graduating, they also own more assets such as cell phones, mattresses, livestock, land and homes.
We sponsored 118 students to continue their education last year, the majority of which are bright, but very poor girls who otherwise would have had to drop out. 95% of the children of women who have graduated from BeadforLife are enrolled in school.
