Bead for Life work/fundraising project in Uganda, peace lobbying days  
Everyone, Resolve Uganda will host another Lobby Day for peace in Uganda, and for world governments to do more to lobby for a political solution and a ceasefire and UN peacekeeper support, this June 22-23rd.

We encourage people to either visit their leaders' offices or to call/write/email as an alternative if a visit is not possible. Please request your government to provide logistical support for the Ugandan peace process and to stop child kidnappings and enslavement and violence against civilians.

By the way, there's a wonderful organization known as Bead for Life, where Ugandan people create traditional jewelry from recycled paper and sell the bracelets and necklaces. Profits go towards the beadmakers' income along with community development, health and education projects. You can buy jewelry from the site or host a 'Bead Party' where you and your friends can sample and buy jewelry together.
