Organization Fellowship With Ugandan Bead Partners

Women Who Pray Together Stay Together

Two are better than one…

This week we caught up with the women of Wando International’s Bead Partnership Program.

Wando’s outreach coordinator, Jennifer, has been organizing and leading Bible studies with these amazing women each week.  This week the group focused on the book of Ecclesiastes 4:9.

The women openly discussed the topic of unity and togetherness.

Being able to join in fellowship is important for this tightknit group of jewelry artisans.  Each of them has their own story and their own set of struggles.  Many of them are from the northern part of Uganda where people were ravaged by the Lord’s Resistance Army during the Kony crises.

They have formed a bond that is unparalleled.

When one falls, there is always another strong woman there to help them back up.

Wando International has made it their purpose to strengthen and encourage this group for the long term.  They are as much a part of the Wando family as the orphaned children being cared for at the babies’ home.

The weekly gatherings for fellowship and unity will continue to strengthen our personal relationship with our Ugandan bead partners.  Their commitment to succeed in their business coupled with supporters willing to help them reach their full potential is where the real impact is made.

In 2014 she learned of Michelle Huo’s work with Wando International to empower vulnerable women and children to shift the course of their lives. After taking her first trip to visit Wando’s projects in Uganda Elizabeth joined Michelle in 2015 to help her achieve her vision. Now Elizabeth is working to help students in third world countries like Uganda learn the skills that businesses and Non-Profits around the world want and need. By strategically partnering these students with SMB and Non-Profit organizations, they become empowered to lift themselves out of poverty while organizations benefit from increased revenue generation.
