What we do at BeadforLife:
BeadforLife’s mission is to enable women to lift their families out of poverty by starting small businesses which provide sustainable income. We do this through the sale of handmade jewelry made of recycled paper and by providing financial support for entrepreneurial training programs.
BeadforLife promotes our work through heartfelt messaging and storytelling about the people we serve and seeks to educate and engage citizens about extreme poverty and to offer sales opportunities for them to take action to end it.
At the present time the current BeadforLife is splitting into two separate but connected organizations. BeadforLife will continue to promote sales of handmade products, and a new sister organization, Street Business School, will focus on entrepreneurial trainings in Africa and beyond.
