THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT

Artisan Organization: 31 Bits

Country: Uganda

31 Bits was founded because of the friendships formed with incredible women in Uganda. The women grew up during a horrific, twenty-year war in Eastern Africa that left their community in drastic need. Most of them had little-to-no education as kids. Some are HIV positive, single moms, or were left without family or a home because of the war. However, these strong women didn’t let their circumstances define them. They began rolling beads from paper, and searched for ways to sell them. After forming a partnership to sell their jewelry, 31 Bits implemented a five year program that offers fair pay and holistic care. The program includes finance education and business training, promotes physical and mental wellness, and care for their families and communities.
