A % of Sales Goes Directly to WGEF with our New Partnership with Bolder Bracelets

We are excited to announce our new partnership with Bolder Bracelets.

“When you buy one of our bracelets a portion of the proceeds of each bracelet sale goes directly to WGEF. The text on each bracelet is derived from key concepts from that organization. These sayings take on a life of their own as part of the saying is on the inside of the bracelet and partially on the top. You can stack many of these bracelets and create your own poem!” – Bolder Bracelets

Shop the collection of the WGEF inspired bracelets today. You can see the collection here. Grab one or the complete set of five. ==> Shop Bolder Bracelets

Gulu Client Says, “Before I was blind, now I can see.”

Last Tuesday, we traveled to Lapin Loyo; after very challenging roads we arrived to be greeted by over 50 WGEF clients who live in the village and work/study together at our training centre. While discussing the literacy program, I asked how it impacted their lives and made them feel; here is the one quote which will make your day and is a great reminder of why we do this work.
“Before I was blind, now I can see,” Anek said she now could write her own name and she was proud.
I asked her to share, this is what she showed me above.
This was a powerful and moving moment, which will stay with me always…I hope you are inspired.
