Mothering Across Continents necklaces are strung by a Batwa (pygmy) tribe, who gather the beads (seeds) near the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda.
The necklaces symbolize what happens when women are connected and equipped as a social network changing the lives of children in Africa. They can be worn in a single strand, looped, as a lariat, or as a layered bracelet.
Of the millions of children who are orphans in Africa, only a small minority live in traditional orphanages. Through a collaboration with Dream Out Loud Films, we are one of the exclusive providers of the "Best in Fest" film Angels in the Dust. The film profiles Marion Cloete – who, with her family – left a privileged life to create an orphanage serving 500 children in South Africa.
Would you like to arrange a public showing of the film with a guest presentation from Mothering Across Continents? Call 704.607.0098 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2008, South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu explained the traditional African concept of Ubuntu as, "... the essence of being human... When you have this quality – Ubuntu – you are known for your generosity."
Through a collaboration with Dream Out Loud Films, we are one of the exclusive providers of DO UBUNTU, the Orphan Bracelet Campaign. These bracelets are hand-crafted in South Africa using lead-free copper, brass and aluminum wire.
