Three Sisters, Jinja, Uganda
Three Sisters is a woman’s group based in Jinja, Uganda. Irene started the group as a way to improve her income after she was left widowed, and alone with young children. She is also the main carer of her sister’s children. Her idea was to create an income generating project which provided an income for woman who are the main or sole earners in their families. When the group have large orders they work with rural based woman whom they have trained in making the recycled paper beads.
“A Word From Helen!
The quality of work they produce is fantastic and we love the new range of paper purses they have created. The time and effort put into each purse is amazing – a very unique new product that we love!
