Support the community of Masese III by purchasing one of these beautiful, hand-crafted Ugandan paper bead jewelry from the Man Up and Go Etsy store, Mission4Masese. Not only are the jewelry pieces stunning, but all proceeds go directly back into the community.
The jewelry is made from strips of paper by the Karamojong women from the slums of Masese III in Uganda. The women who create these pieces are paid generous and fair wages for every necklace they make. This means they have a reliable source of income for their families.
We then sell the jewelry in the U.S. at a fair price, and the proceeds are sent back to Uganda where they fund the Bethel Junior School. Man Up partnered with Home Again Ministry to start this school in 2012, and they now have over 250 students enrolled! Bethel Junior is one of only 3 schools in the entire Masese area, and the only private one to provide a Christian education to these children who otherwise would not be in school. The sales of these necklaces are truly changing lives in this Ugandan community!
Kakira Sugar Works is the leading sugar manufacturer in Uganda. You can have a little piece of this Ugandan staple by purchasing a Ugandan sugar tote bag. These bags are made from recycled sugar sacks from Kakira Sugar Works by the Karamajong women in Masese III. Just like the paper bead jewelry, the proceeds from the sales of these bags will directly benefit the Bethel Junior School to help educate, clothe, and feed the over 250 children who attend there. These bags are perfect for the grocery store, the pool, the beach, and errand-running in general. We promise you will love these bags! Thank you in advance for your support!

Man Up and Go has partnered with Carry 117, a ministry in the Korah community of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to promote and sell their bags, clutches, purses, wallets, and more, at a Fair-Trade price. Started in 2015 by long-time Man Up friend Henok Berhanu, Carry 117 seeks to identify women from the trash dump community in Korah, teach them life and job skills in a vocational training program, and share the hope and love of Christ in the process. These women are salaried employees, so their wages depend on selling products primarily in Western markets, and affords them stability at home, instills work ethic, and promotes self-worth and dignity as they provide for their children.
Want to participate practically in James 1:27 without going to Africa? Become an Ambassador in our Fair-Trade Mission to sell the products our single mothers and widows produce. As an Ambassador, you will purchase a box of products from Man Up and Go that include various kinds of bags, bracelets, wallets, necklaces, and other products made by the women Man Up and Go supports. In your box, you will be given an inventory sheet and suggested resale price, as well as instructions on hosting a party or event where you can share these women’s incredible stories. Any monies raised are yours to keep! This win-win arrangement helps the women enrolled in vocational training programs, helps Man Up, and puts a little cash in your pocket.
