How partnering with WorldCrafts changes artisans' lives.“Partnering with WorldCrafts and Proverbs 31 Women has transformed many lives in these villages. The women often use their income to start small businesses for their families. It allows them to pay for uniforms and supplies for their children’s school. Some of them even use it to pay for transportation to their AIDS and HIV treatments. Though these women often care for the children of deceased family members as well as their own children, selling jewelry allows them to overcome the financial hardships of a large family. And through their involvement with our bead group, all of these women are able to hear the gospel. Many needs are met for the women of Uganda through Proverbs 31 Women and WorldCrafts” –Proverbs 31 Women, Uganda
Our partnership with WorldCrafts "gives us hope that we can do the journey along side with this women from sex trade and keep providing more ladies freedom. It gives us the confidence that we can sustain them and keep the employed because their are orders which are regular so the group can have regular income." -Love Calcutta Arts, India
