I am grateful for the bead project, because as a house wife there are essential needs I couldn’t acquire.

Before I began making beads I could not raise my full school fees. But out of the income from the bead sales I have been able to complete my ordinary level of education and have acquired a certificate. So if the opportunity to sell continues I hope to save and then pursue a progression in teaching at college. Thanks, Naigino, Racheal
