Teddy Namuyiga, left, Joan Ahimbisibwe, center, and Irene Namaganda (of BeadforLife) participated in a drum circle at Bethany Towers Retirement Community in Hollywood on Monday, April 22. Namuyiga and Ahimbisibwe, from Uganda, visited Bethany Towers as part of a national “Opportunity Tour” sponsored by BeadforLife, a nonprofit organization that provides Ugandan women the opportunity to lift their families out of extreme poverty by selling their crafts on a worldwide stage. The Ugandan women create jewelry made of beads fashioned from recycled paper, and Beads for Life is helping develop a market for the distinctive crafts. Los Angeles is the final leg of the Opportunity Tour. Additional information about the program as well as retail locations selling the jewelry can be found at the website BeadforLife.org.
