How to make a recycled magazine bowl or buy to support poor and disadvantaged women providing employment and training, and promoting self-reliance amongst disadvantaged families and ethnic minorities in Southern Vietnam.
I have tried to get a hold of Afribeads without much prevail. But have had success in making my own beads from magazines and PVA glue. They are really strong and using a whole page of similar colours creates a great coloured necklace/bracelet. Quite time consuming with the hardest part being getting off the stick. I used a paintbrush to coil and found spraying some oil on before hand helped the bead slide off.
Update: You can directly by beads and beaded products from Bead For Life, the not-for-profit organisation that helps women in extreme poverty in Uganda.
