Various tribes have been making Recycled Paper Beads as early as the 1930s. Ndejje, located in the Luwero District of central Uganda, has become the modern hub of recycled paper bead-making in Africa, with large co-operatives now producing beads in abundance for the Western market. These co-operatives work in conjunction with various well known organizations, such as Bead For Life and Outreach Uganda, which were established to help women generate a regular income for their families. The organizations ensure that all paper beads are purchased under fair trade agreements so that Ugandan artisans are not exploited for their skills.
