Ugandan Beaded Cross
Description – Each of these beautiful crosses was beaded by a young girl in Agwata, Uganda, to help her go to school. If a girl’s parents are unable to pay for her education, a girl is often encouraged to marry a man willing to do so. Under this program, the girls make and sell beaded crosses to be self-supporting.
The money they earn helps with school fees, uniforms, toiletries, even bedding and mattresses for when they board at school. We support these young women who often go on to become teachers and doctors in their own communities.
Construction Details – Each paper bead is sealed, then hand-strung with coordinating glass beads on elastic jewelers cord.
Size – The cross ornaments measure 4-1/4″ x 5″ tall by 3-1/2″ wide
