About Our Jewelry:


At Wando International we’re equipping widows and orphans with the skills and education necessary to eliminate extreme poverty, change the family tree and create a better future for their families and communities. Check out our blog to learn more about how we’re making a difference or browse around our site to learn how you can be a part of the change.

About Our Bead Program:

  • We teach women living in the slums of Uganda how to make jewelry from 100% recycled paper, giving them an alternative to prostitution or begging.
  • By partnering with one of the women, you receive a monthly package of jewelry, which you can share or sell with friends and family. All earnings will go directly to the woman who made them, which she uses to provide for herself and her children.
  • You’ll also receive updates on the woman you’re helping so you can see how lives are being transformed… one bead at a time.
