Organization does good work in Uganda
I ran into the sister and brother team, Christina and Matthew Tamer at Boston’s SOWA Market yesterday. Their booth was next to Mountain Spirit Institute’s. I overheard them saying they were volunteering for a non-profit started by Karen Sparacio, and their org is dedicated to improving the lives of families in the Acholi area of Uganda who have been displaced by war. They focus on providing funds to help the women start small businesses ant to pay school fees for the children there.
The woman in Acholi make beautiful bead jewelry, using magazine paper to create colorful and unique pieces. One project of Project Have Hope is to promote beadwear parties and share the hand-crafted jewelry with friends while benefiting the Acholi area.
