The women we partner with in Uganda are more than just poor women who need a hand out of poverty. We believe that they are dreamers in the best sense. Dreamers who will envision brighter futures for their families and communities and then do the hard work of making those dreams into realities.
Uganda, it seems to us, is best served by the dreams of Ugandans. So in our work with our Ugandan partners, supporting their best dreams is our mission.
Likewise, America is best served by the dreams of Americans. Just like in Uganda, our families and communities need our best dreams. It is up to us to dream up ways to improve our homes, our neighborhoods, our cities, even our country. And it is up to us to do the hard work of making those dreams into realities.
That is what the new white bead on many of our designs means. It represents your dreams. And it represents how you are connected to the women in Uganda who made your jewelry by hand. And it reminds us that, together, our dreams light the future.
