Ugandan Women use recycled paper to make beads. They turn these beads into colorful necklaces, bracelets and earrings.

Local Women's Cooperative

The Kasiisi Project works with local Ugandan Women’s Cooperatives to buy jewelry; we pay the women fair trade for their crafts. Any profit we make selling the jewelry goes back to the Kasiisi Project and our work in rural Uganda.

Ugandan Paper Bead Necklaces

We are still in the process of setting up our store, but in the meantime if you are interested in purchasing jewelry for yourself or as a gift, please contact us and we will arrange with you payment and shipping. All the necklaces, earrings and bracelets are unique and ‘one of a kind,’ so please let us know your favorite colors and styles and we will try our best to match the right jewelry to your taste!

The Kasiisi Project is also selling handmade aprons from Uganda. These aprons are made by local Ugandan Women’s Cooperatives. The apron fabric is colorful and will brighten up any kitchen activity! The aprons come in adult and children’s sizes. Contact us if you are interested in purchasing an apron.

Additionally, the Kasiisi Project is selling photographs to benefit the project. Photographer Ronan Donovan has generously offered his photography to our project and any profit from the sales, Ronan will donate to the Kasiisi Project. To purchase Kasiisi Project Photos please visit and Kasiisi Project Gallery.
