These items were handmade by mothers and widows in our ministry. While legally, Ugandan women are able to own property and possessions and be legal guardians, culturally, men are expected to provide and own everything. Many widows and single mothers are unable to provide for themselves or their families without the skill training and entrepreneurship skills Benjamin House Ministries teaches. Each of our "Made by Me" items are handmade by Ugandan women in our ministry. When you purchase "Made by Me" items, you receive beautiful and completely unique items that provide work for these mothers and widows!
