BeadforLife introduces a new way for companies to empower women by bringing recycled paper bead lanyards and jewelry to their meetings and events. The nonprofit partners with women in Uganda who create beautiful jewelry and handcrafted items from recycled paper to earn income and lift their families from poverty. The sustainability goes deeper, as BeadforLife invests profits from bead sales into entrepreneurial training programs throughout Africa, so women can launch small businesses, increase their confidence and income and transform their lives. The organization invites companies to partner by hosting events, providing meaningful co-branded gifts, or through organized volunteerism.

Skip the ballroom and take your meeting to sea!
