Bead Maker
Married
3 children

I name is Helen and I am 35 years old, married and have 3 children. Two of my children are in primary school now and I work very hard to make sure they can continue their education and get good jobs. I am originally from Pader district in Northern Uganda, but moved to Jinja when I got married. I have been making these beaded necklaces for over 5 years now. I know am good at what I do because my customers are always happy when they buy my necklaces. Now that All Across Africa buys our necklaces in large quantities, the women in my beading group and myself are able to receive more money, allowing us to grow and develop our group. We are very thankful for All Across Africa!
