The Hope Again Women's Ministry (HAWM) Cooperative is a women's empowerment and employment program facilitated by African Children Today (ACT) in Rakai, Uganda.
African Children Today is committed to supporting women and children suffering from the social and economic effects of the AIDS epidemic.
One solution that is changing lives in Rakai is the HAWM. This project employs more than 300 women, many of whom are widows affected by HIV/AIDS and who care for multiple children in their households. The women produce beautiful jewelry made from recycled magazines as well as intricate, hand-dyed, hand-woven grass items including baskets and trivets.
You can support the livelihoods of the women involved in the Hope Again Women's Ministry as well as provide additional income for ACT's school programs by purchasing a truly, one-of-a-kind, handmade item.
On behalf of the Hope Again Women's Ministry:
THANK YOU for your support!
