  • 1000 Shillings works with six women in the Namatala slum of Mbale, Uganda, to help them bring their paper-bead jewelry to the international market. The company is named for the amount of Ugandan shillings that the average woman in the Namatala slum lives on per day—approximately $0.40 in US dollars. Handmade out of beautiful teal paper beads, the Ado necklace is simple and charming enough to be worn every day, and the proceeds help the women in Namatala work towards their ultimate goal of becoming standalone small business owners.
