African Art & Crafts

This program helps women earn needed income to support their families.

URF partnered with Ten Thousand Villages who trained our women to make baskets. The first group of 56 women who received training are now training more women in the community. The baskets are sold through 10,000 Villages, a fair trade group distributing crafts on a world market.

More than 200 baskets have been sold in the past two months. This has become the number one source of income for most of the URF women. Thanks to all who have helped sell or buy the baskets. In July a team from Kampala conducted a two days crafts training for the women and HOPE students including making paper bags, envelops, folders, binders, beads, and jewelry.
