Asali means “honey” in Swahili and there is nothing sweeter than empowering a woman a world away to change her life.

Bead Maker

Born in Iganga, Uganda, Khasfa is now 50 years old. Her parents lived in dire poverty and had no means of taking care of their eight children. When she was a toddler she was taken from her parents to live with her aunt. Khasifa appreciates her aunt’s support but wishes for one thing. “I wish I had gone to school.” Khasifa never dreamed life could be any better than what she grew accustomed to in her youth. “I saw myself living in poverty all my life,” said Khasifa. After joining BeadforLife, her perception changed. For the first time she could see just a small glimmer of hope. Her new hopes and dreams empowered her to make a swift change in her life. “I had never put my brain to good use as I do now,” said Khasifa, “I am more knowledgeable in ways of farming and poultry.”

Now Khasifa is a good example and inspiration to her neighbors. She works joyfully creating the most beautiful beads. Every day is a new opportunity for her, one she truly cherishes.
