Deida Massey will be once again visiting the Uzima Center and while there spoke to the girls about their own goals and how to be an impact within their village. In addition, sponsors from the Global Health Initiative at the University of Chicago and countless volunteers collected hygienic items to give to the girls while in Africa.
Deida made both home and school visits while in Mwanza. The most alarming concern for Deida was the distance the girls traveled from home to school. As a result, Deida used the Bongo Bead Project as a way to raise funds to support the girls at the Uzima Center and their transportation needs.
The Bongo Beads are handmade paper beads made from Orphans at the Uzima Center to help pay their school expenses. Reel Beauty has partnered with the Uzima Center and the Bongo Bead Project to increase awareness on education and provide funding for our girls in Mwanza.
