Incredible Impact

We believe that in order to end poverty, we must empower women to transform their lives. BeadforLife has 15 years of experience helping women build sustainable futures, having worked with the very poorest, yet hard-working women in Africa. We employ talented artisans who are earning income to feed their families, send their children to school and want to create a better lives.

We’ve helped 60,000 people through our combined programs to date, and that continues growing.

The purchase of our Fair Trade products not only provides increased income for the artisan to meet their immediate needs, it also allows us to offer our business training to other women.

Our Street Business School entrepreneurial training program yields incredible results:
