I found this great resource that was developed by an organization in Uganda about how to build and create an economic empowerment group through bead making. The organization, Bead for Life, has developed their own materials about how to create this entrepreneurial group and have provided some great information about how to create your own bead making party in your community.
I’m curious to know if these resources like this are relevant to our community? Why or why not? Have you seen something like this occurring in your own community with maybe a different product that has brought economic empowerment that you could also share? Please let me know as I continue to search for more resources to share with our community.
Here is a link to their website with information:http://www.beadforlife.org/womens-empowerment-toolkit I have also attached a copy of their sample agenda to this post.
There are also some great resources including videos links and suggested reading.
