Hello everyone! Lauren just sent a link to a very thoughtful article in the current Newsweek Magazine about Joseph Kony and his war against the Ugandan Government. For those of you interested in some of the why behind Awava's work, please read this article. Awava works predominantly with Women in conflict and post-conflict areas of Uganda. Many of our Women are from Gulu,one of the areas hardest hit by Kony's Lord's Resistance Army. All of the Women making our paper bead products live in one of the many overwhelmed internally displaced persons (IDP)camps.
