Paper Beads- A Way of Earning Income - Help Find a Market

Status: In progress
Time needed: 
Two weeks or more
Step: 
2

The members of Revelation Children’s Ministries International come from every tribe in Eastern and Northern Uganda. They are Christian and Muslim, young and old, educated and illiterate. The one thing they have in common is that they have suffered from extreme poverty due to wars and other related calamities. They have great resilience, strength and determination with hard work and have hope living with dignity and determination.

Revelation Children’s Ministries International is in partnership with these women, and a few men too, to offer their stories and beautiful jewelry and bags to the world.

Many of the women in Revelation Children’s Ministries International are from the Iteso, Kuman, Acholi, Karamojong and Langi tribe and have been driven from their homes in North Eastern and Northern Uganda by a brutal warlord bringing terror and death to their villages. They left their agricultural way of life to avoid the violence and to protect their children from kidnappings. It was in this neighborhood that Revelation Children’s Ministries International began and launched the bead-making cottage industry that is still in its infant stages.

They are mostly without marketable skills or adequate education. In Uganda unemployment is very high. For these women, the primary means of earning a living is laboring for others in the market and selling brew, for this work they receive about a dollar a day or a bout $30 dollars a month, many others earned a few shillings washing clothes or selling vegetables.

The women want to provide three meals a day for their extended family. Other spending priorities include:

• Rent
• School fees, books, pens, shoes, and school uniforms
• Medicines and health care
• Transportation, clothing, household items
• Contributions to other family members in need

It is with this that Revelation Children’s Ministry in calling upon neighbors to try find ways, ideas of marketing these products, we call upon all of you, not only interested members to join us in trying to market these beads around the world. This will help change the living conditions of both the orphans and women around Bugembe.

If not, is there a library, even if it's pretty far that has public computers and a scanner that you would be able to use? I think if you can get photos of the products out to the public, that would be a giant first step. Websites are very easy to build and many website hosting companies are free or low budget. You would have to make sure that the hosting company would allow you to sell things on the site. If none of this is possible, is there a place where you can sell the products? You can advertise by putting up flyers on bulletin boards, if you get permission. Here in America, we have bulletin boards in colleges campuses, in grocery stores, in public libraries and more.

With a quick search on the internet I found the organisation bead for life. They work in Uganda and sell beads in their internetshop http://www.beadforlife.org/indexA.html . Maybe they can advise you or even better become a partner in selling the beads.

I think you have three options to sell your beads:
1. Is to develop a partnership with an existing organastion as suggested above, so that they can sell the beads international via the internet
2. Is to develop your own webshop (but that will take more time and hassle)
3. Is to try to find a local market to sell your beads (is there any tourism in your district?, do local people also want to by beads or are they manly bougt by foreigners?)

Is there somewhere we can view the jewelry/handbags? I think one of the first steps would be to try to get some nice photographs of the handcrafts so some interest can be solicited from importers or on-line merchants.

For several years, after living in Guatemala for several years, I imported handcrafts from there and sold them in a retail store in the USA. That is very involved.

Since the women are farmers, is there land they can use for growing and selling vegetables, fruit, animals [rabbits, goats, pigs, etc]? There is a market for food everywhere. I can mail seed for some new crops such as spaghetti squash, endamame soybeans, etc.

All the best-

Michael and Esther-

I sent out some pictures on the Nabuur Twitter account to show others the world what is being done in your village with the paper beads/jewelry. One of our friends at Kabissa suggested that you contact www.beadforlife.org. This is an organization based in the USA. I see that Lotte had suggested this to you in an earlier post as well.

Have you followed up on any of the suggested contacts? If so, can you update regarding which you have contacted and what information you have found out?

All the best-

Jennifer
