Using Paper Beads to Improve Ugandan Lives 环保纸珠改善乌干达生活 Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, as the old saying goes. But some women are finding a lot to like about colorful beads from Uganda made of recycled paper. The beads are sold by a nonprofit organization in the United States called BeadforLife. 常言道钻石是女人最好的朋友。而乌干达利用再生环保纸制造的彩色珠子也倍受女士追捧。珠子的销售点就在美国一个叫BeadforLife的非盈利组织。 BeadforLife began as a chance meeting between three American women on a trip to Uganda and a local jewelry maker. Millie Grace Akena was rolling paper beads near her home. She worked at a rock quarry. She made paper beads as a hobby. But there was no real market for them in her country. BeadforLife的出现始于在乌干达旅游的三位美国女士与当地一位珠宝加工工人的机缘相遇。在采石场工作的米利耶·格雷斯·阿凯纳当时正在她家附近滚纸做珠子。做纸珠子是她的业余爱好。但是这些纸珠子在乌干达是没有真正市场的。 Torkin Wakefield says she, her daughter Devin Hibbard and Ginny Jordan brought some of the beads back to the United States. 托尔金·韦克菲尔德说她和她的两个女儿德雯·希巴德还有金妮·约旦都买了一些珠子带回美国。 The three Americans launched BeadforLife in two thousand four. Nearly seven hundred women have taken part. 2004年她们三人在美国成立了 BeadforLife。近700位女士加入了这个非盈利性组织。 The group says its beaders earn an average of more than two thousand dollars a year in the program. This is five times what they earned before. Torkin Wakefield says the women spend up to eighteen months in the program. 组织内人员说通过这个组织,纸珠工人平均每年能赚2000多美元。是他们之前所赚的5倍。托尔金·韦克菲尔德说妇女们花费18个月的时间在这个项目上。
