Artisans from Uganda
Proverbs 31 Women
In many areas of Uganda, women lose everything to their in-laws when their husbands pass away. Without land, education, or job skills, widows and orphans are left without hope. Proverbs 31 Women artisan group is restoring hope and joy as HIV-positive widows are taught to create beautiful handmade paper bead jewelry.
With their incomes from Proverbs 31 Women, these widows are able to purchase homes and food. Some have bought cows so their children have milk and then they sell the rest. Some have paid off loans. Others have started new businesses. One even put a solar panel on her house!
