Learn about an extraordinary project in a unique part of the world! For the past six years, Beverley Smith and Janet Flynn have volunteered with an Italian Aid Organization in northern Uganda, training a group of thirty-four men and women in jewellery skills and design.  With new skills, this remarkable group creates and sells jewellery to finance their children’s schooling. 

A short film and pictures, illustrate the story of these remarkable Ugandans working to overcome years of war and hardship.
