If Acholi Beads becomes as big of a success as I believe it will be, it won’t be our success. It will be the market’s success. Acholi Beads’ success is testament to our customers and retailers, their belief that business should make the world better, not worse, and their desire to share a connection with a wonderful group of women on the far side of the world.
Our success here at Acholi Beads will be when NUPECA succeeds. NUPECA is the co-operative of women that handmake every piece of Acholi Beads jewelry. We helped these women to organize and found NUPECA, and our success will be turning the market success of Acholi Beads to the benefit of these great women.
NUPECA’s success is when the women, families, and communities involved thrive. When their children have great education, their homes are rebuilt, and their communities are flourishing once again after two decades of war.
That’s how it works. Success starts with you. Let’s go there.
