My good friend Karl Drechsler spent the last two months in Uganda with me, sourcing materials, organizing retreats, and becoming great friends with the women of Acholi Beads. He was so inspired by their work to improve their lives that he made a commitment himself. Having returned to his native Seattle he is planning 27 events to celebrate the 27 women who make Acholi Beads jewelry.
Each event will feature a different bead maker, and all of them will support the wonderful work of Karl’s new friends in Uganda. And if all goes according to plan, Karl will be back in Uganda this summer for grad school, and to make some more funny faces.
