Empowering women and our planet
BeadforLife trains and employs women in Uganda to hand roll beads that go into every jewelry piece, paying them up front. We’ve employed thousands of artisans to date and have provided community programs to counsel, provide health, school feeding, water projects, mosquito nets, housing and more.
We care deeply for protecting workers and the environment. Our products have been sourced locally, and we focus intently on sustainable product development, having patented an eco-friendly glaze to coat our recycled paper beads. We make every effort to reuse and repurpose materials to minimize our financial and environmental impact. We also use intentional transport decisions across continents to reduce our footprint.
