See How Rachael is Escaping Poverty and Learn What You Can Do to Help

Her plan to escape the slums of Uganda.

Have you ever feared being forced out of your home unable to pay your rent?

When having serious financial challenges this is just one of the many fears that plague your every waking thoughts.  You’re worried about putting food on the table, meeting medical needs, or having some unexpected emergency.  If you’re a parent, the stress level is even higher. This is what Alaroke Rachael faces every single day living in the slums of Uganda. Without opportunities to work and earn livable wages, having no education she’s forced to find whatever labor jobs she can to try and survive.  Even worse, she’s a single mom raising a baby girl who has a serious heart defect.  But there is HOPE for Rachael.

Since partnering with Wando International, she’s started on the path to escaping extreme poverty.
And here’s how:  

  1. Develop Quick Skills
    • First thing on Rachael’s plan was to quickly develop new skills that would allow her to increase her income immediately.  She learned how to handcraft artisan jewelry with resources from recycled paper using household items as tools in production. With a little practice, she mastered the art of rolling beads and making BEAUTIFUL, quality necklaces and bracelets.
  2. Start a Business
    • After learning how to produce a top notch product with minimal start up costs, she turned that into a business.  Rather than waiting for an opening somewhere to earn the least amount they were willing to give, she took her product to market and DOUBLED HER INCOME in a matter of days. The best part of it was that she could work from home while watching her daughter, Sheha.
  3. Expand Network of Buyers
    • Next thing Rachael realized was that even with a new business, her earning potential was limited without an established network.  She knew she had to connect with “influencers” so she could GROW her network of buyers fast. In 2016 she partnered with Wando International and leveraged their network of supporters, donors, and volunteers who have been helping to raise awareness for her and increase sales.
  4. Connect Business to Global Marketplace
    • Finally, Rachael’s plan to escape the slum included connecting her business to the global marketplace.  She knows that the opportunities in Uganda are not just limited for her, but are strained for most. By creating a bridge from her business to the world outside of the slums and outside of Uganda, she’s increased her earning potential exponentially.  Rachael is now leveraging Wando International’s platform to sell her handmade products to people in the US and around the world.

Alaroke Rachael’s motivation is to not just survive, but THRIVE.

She wants to escape the slums not by getting a handout, but by cultivating a successful business and working her way out.  YOU can help her do this by buying handmade paper beaded jewelry directly from her.  By wearing one of her unique, one-of-a-kind pieces and by sharing her story with others, you will be directly EMPOWERING HER to escape poverty and be able to provide a stable living environment for herself and her daughter.   Support this woman business owner by purchasing from her BEAUTIFUL COLLECTION of handcrafted artisan necklaces today.

About the Author:

In 2007, Elizabeth experienced a jarring shift going from serving self to serving others. She found her calling and started seeking opportunities to connect with different Non-Profit organizations that help their communities both locally and abroad. She got involved with local outreach as a mentor helping youth build self-confidence and find a more fulfilling life through service. She then traveled to Haiti on a mission to cultivate relationships with people experiencing extreme poverty and align herself with the organizations doing something to help. Her most valuable lesson learned was that relationships can and should always be Win/Win. Finding common ground and mutually beneficial opportunities is where she finds the real magic. In 2014 Elizabeth learned the story of Michelle Huo, founder of 501c3 organizations Urban Connection and Wando International. She saw that Michelle’s work was different in the way that it actually empowered others to shift the course of their lives. This resonated so deeply with Elizabeth that she joined Michelle in 2015 to help her achieve her vision. Elizabeth is now working to help students in third world countries like Uganda learn the skills that businesses and Non-Profit organizations around the world want and need. In demand skills like driving traffic, raising awareness, and converting leads. 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. If you're interested in growing your SMB or Non-Profit organization while making a difference in the lives of others, call Elizabeth Lozano directly at (888) 926-3688 Ext. #703
