We are happy to see the progress our Agwata group of beaders are making in learning to make paper beads.  These 90 ladies are our newest group of beaders.  So far they have been concentrating on making just the basic paper bead bracelets, necklaces and loose beads.  However, a few of the ladies are trying beaded coin purses, and the only tailor in the village, Jacklin, is now trying to make sling bags.  That’s good progress!  Here are some photos which show them hard at work rolling the paper beads.
