Beading Barriers is a social initiative, acting in partnership with She’s the First, aimed to educate & empower young women in the local Ann Arbor community. These young women will learn how to craft & sell beaded jewelry made from recycled magazine paper to raise money to sponsor a female student at the Arlington Academy of Hope in Uganda. Sponsored by She’s the First, this student will be theĀ first in her family to graduate from secondary school.
