Beadforlife.org – Eradicating poverty in Uganda

Devin Hibbard – Beadforlife.org – Helping Uganda women earn their way out of extreme poverty

My name is Devin Hibbard, and I’m the founder and executive director of Bead for Life. Bead for Life is a poverty eradication program that works with women in Uganda to help them earn their way out of extreme poverty, and they do that by making beads out of recycled paper or by collecting Shea nuts that we turn into beautiful Shea products.

On the North America side, we distribute those products, but we also really try to engage with people who are buying our products on what it means to live on a dollar a day and how they can get involved in the campaign to end extreme poverty in our lifetime.
