Three new bead makers! And photos on the way…

Due to the growth of our business over the last couple months Acholi Beads has been able to hire three new bead makers, and promote one bead maker to a full time production management position.  Increasing our production staff this soon after the founding of the business is extremely exciting, and  a sign of great things to come.

Yesterday I was in Acholi Quarter buying beads and taking photos of each of our bead makers.  The photos will be up ASAP; in the meantime, a preview: meet Gladys (right), a 26-year-old mother of three who fled her home in the north in 2004 to escape the war.
