The summer is an exciting time of year for us. This is when we work with the Jinja women on new ideas for crafts they can make that we can buy from them and then sell back in the U.S. It's very important because these craft purchases by Outreach Uganda help provide important funding for the Jinja women to use to expand and stabilize their businesses as well as save to build a home. Having a stable and successful small businesses in Uganda is key to helping each woman eventually be able to afford her own home!
Together we can help build homes for these women! It's a combination of: 1. income from our bead and craft purchases 2. having stable businesses the women can do in Uganda all year long and 3. additional funding made possible through these project and other funding sources
Selling these craft product purchases back in the U.S. is always a delicate balance of having a good selection of old favorites combined with some new exciting items that our customers here have not seen before! Happy customers here buying more crafts means we can increase our purchases from the Jinja women so they earn more money!
We'll soon be traveling to Uganda so we can work in person with the Jinja women on these new ideas. Attached are a couple of photos from past years when the women are busily making paper beads to be used in many different jewelry and accessory projects. We look forward to our next report to you where we can update you on our new ideas for the 2023 holiday season.
