Gifts that Give Back: Support Mothers in Uganda by Buying Beautiful Jewelry

It is a wonderful gift to help people in need become self-sufficient.

It’s even better when you get a beautifully made product out of it 🙂

1000 Shillings has a pretty amazing business model.  A group of highly talented women artisans earn capital for their own small businesses by making limited edition jewelry for the company. Each and every product sold through 1000 Shillings helps a woman establish a small business, which enables her to support her family.

These women are not being given handouts, they are being offered a leg up.

I urge you to check out the lovely paper bead jewelry on the site (all under $30) and read more about the lives of each of these amazing mothers
