What a delightful young woman and a pleasure to talk to.
I met Amanda at the South Bend Farmers Market a few weeks ago. I usually take a walk around to take a look at the items offered there and discovered Amanda’s beaded jewelry.
Asking her where she acquired her beads she began telling me this incredible story. Amanda works with a group of women in Uganda helping them improve their life’s situation. The women produce the beads and she helps with marketing the jewelry.
What is even more amazing she is helping the children of Kampala, Uganda. Specifically young boys from the streets.

She is dedicated to restoring their hope and giving them a future.

She has taught high school Spanish for 2 years.
