The Women of Destiny are a group of women living in Mukono, Uganda. When the Pastor of True Vine ministries realized how difficult the lives of many single mothers and widows were, he encouraged them to start a crafting group and they began making and selling paper beads. In 2011, we met these beautiful women for the first time and fell in love with not only their beads....but their beautiful hearts. We began using their beads in our creations and when we realized the quality of their beads were superior to many we had seen in the market, we began selling their designs as well.
The woman are paid very fair wages and they are able to use the funds to send their children to school and start other small businesses.
