The Mighty River Project partners with Ugandan artisans as they use their craft skills to support their families.
It works like this:
First, one of our Ugandan artisans makes a product - basket, bead, or textile.
Next, The Mighty River Project pays the artisan a fair price upfront for each product.
Finally, you purchase the product.
Meanwhile, we reinvest the proceeds from your purchase, as well as donations received, into the artisans and their families. Each woman in the program receives mentoring, school sponsorship for their children, access to a family medical plan, and any necessary emergency assistance.
As we partner with Ugandan mothers and grandmothers, they have more resources to invest in their families and the likelihood that their children will ever enter institutional care goes down.
Thank you for your partnership!
