Lately we have been talking a lot about beads & showing some pictures of the process ROWAN uses for making them. Now that we know a bit about how they are made, lets meet some of the amazing individuals that make them. Each one of them has (sometimes a sad) story to tell. Today, meet Jaliya, she is from the village of Busambira.
Flashback to Jaliya of 2011
Jaliya is a widow who has one son, her bead making income is primarily to pay for his education. Jaliya’s favorite food is rice & her hero is Jesus. She enjoys spending her time making necklaces, tailoring clothing & working in the clinic to help others.
For over a decade, ROWAN (through your donations) has helped a lot of deserving people like Jaliya live a higher quality of life. Enabling them to grow personally, spiritually & financially. Thanks so much to everyone who has helped to make all of the ROWAN projects possible!
Enjoy the Show
We will continue to share photographic stories of the amazing people of ROWAN, both past & present. Their strength & smiles should be an inspiration to us all. Please keep them in your prayers & if you want to help, we’d also love for you to get involved. Plus, be sure to check our more beading pics.
