Nsambya Women's Craft Cooperative
Nsambya is a slum in the outskirts of Kampala, Uganda. The women who have joined the project all have HIV/AIDS and make beautiful jewellery from recycled paper.
Group membership has more than doubled since August 2007. The women have opened a savings account which they use to save money for treatment, to support their children and to support the children who have been orphaned since the project began.
Despite their struggle, the women continue to support their families and community. Their strength, compassion and commitment is an inspiration to us all.
