Mabira Collective is a team of over 300 women in Lugazi, Uganda who handcraft beautiful jewelry and accessories using locally sourced materials including clay, seeds, and tree bark.

Mabira believes the most effective method to alleviate poverty is providing consistent work and fair payment in a safe environment. When mothers make money, they choose how to spend it in the best ways to create a better life for themselves and their families. In order to create a work environment where women can thrive, Mabira Collective offers paid maternity leave, on-site child care, ongoing education and skills training, healthcare, children's education benefits, the opportunity to advance into management positions, and work from home options.

CISSY, MABIRA COLLECTIVE

“Mabira Collective gave me an opportunity to become a leader. I am in charge of the purchasing department and this position has given me an opportunity to travel outside my country which is a great achievement and learning experience. I have learned a lot of things along the way. I learned the importance of saving money, how to run a business, and living life with purpose by setting goals.”
