This news item comes from Lee Koelzer, the coordinator for Meaningful Volunteer's Grassroots Uganda fair trade initiative in Uganda.


Hello Everyone!

Thankfully, 2010 was another great year for Grassroots Uganda, and I want to thank you all for your support!

With your help we were able to bring 44,399,000ush ($22,199.50) to our women's groups, and a whopping 35,618,200ush ($17,809) to our newly created Artist Co-op!

We were also able to contribute 9,25,800ush ($4,627.90) to our small scale community developement work/ special projects. These include caring for the Jinja Orphans, the Flavia Benefit project,and Building a Latrine for Busy Bee Nursery School, amongst others.

Also, I'm happy to announce that we now have COIN EARRINGS available! We are featuring only a basic design at the moment, but we'll see how styles progress.

If you are interested in where to buy GRU products, or becoming a GRU vendor, please contact me!

peace, Lee
