The 40 members of BeadforLife’s 15th beading group are vibrant, self-driven and motivated to change their lives. Enrolled in April 2012, the women of Progressive chose their name to signify that “step by step, we are moving forward. Only good things are ahead of us.” The group is scheduled to graduate in October 2013, and the members are already convinced that their futures are full of potential.
Kirabo Florence is excited to imagine a better future for her five children. She says that before joining BeadforLife she struggled to survive each day. Now she has a network of Progressive members and BeadforLife staff to support her and all of her children are in school and studying constantly. In November, she intends to start a shoe and clothes selling business using her savings from the first six months of bead sales.
Aboth Immaculate is a young, 23 year old, member of Progressive who is full of energy and hope for the future. She loves to sing, dance and make beads. As a girl she was forced to drop out of school when her father passed away, leaving her family without money for school fees. Within a few months of joining BeadforLife, she started a small business selling fried fish in the evenings. She hopes to expand this business and use the income to support her husband and child.
