About the brand

Vision

At 31 Bits they believe that empowerment is the best way to overcome poverty. That’s why they connect artisans in Uganda to the international market, thereby making it possible for more than 100 women in Uganda to earn a fair income and provide for their families. 31 Bits also wants to create a positive impact on the environment, which is why their beads are made from recycled paper. 

Impact

31 Bits works together with more than 100 women in Northern Uganda, who turn recycled paper into a line of beautiful jewelry. 31 Bits makes sure these women get a fair and consistent income and provides training and counseling for them. Through 31 Bits they do not only get a job, but they also get access to a community and education. They furthermore promote health and stability for the whole family by providing health education, HIV testing and treatment and more. 31 Bits’ products are made from recycled paper and 99% of their materials are sourced in Eastern Africa, thereby supporting local markets. 

Your contribution

But 31 Bits wants to do more than just providing these women with an income: they give them financial education, micro-financing opportunities and business training and mentorship. This way you can be sure your products empower women, so they can actually overcome poverty.
