In the summer of 2014, Alicia taught poetry workshops with students in Gulu, Uganda in conjunction with Educate for Change.  The student poems were compiled into an anthology.  Each purchase of this collection ensures that Educate for Change will continue to empower the youth of northern Uganda by providing sustainable educational opportunities.  To purchase your copy for $9.99, click here.

Paper Bead Jewelry:

We’re really proud to support the work of female artisans and beaders in Bungatira, Uganda. We love their work and are thrilled to sell their pieces to you here.

We’ve had the good fortune of locally selling of the approximately 1,000 pieces we brought back from our last trip.

93% of the profits from paper bead jewelry sales go back into our Paper Bead Project, so that it maintains the ability to be a self-sustaining project and truly supports the women of Bungatira. Watch this 2-minute video to learn more about our Paper Bead Project.

Paintings:

Ugandan artists Ivan Leku, Obonyo Seddrick and Calvin M. Brown work out of Gulu, Uganda.  They’re working artists who believe art brings healing and hope.  Seddrick uses the proceeds from his painting sales to pay his school fees.  All three artists use proceeds from their painting sales to pay for necessities like food, rent and medicine.

All paintings are unframed.  You can purchase any of the paintings via the PayPal links.  Prices do not include shipping and handling.

If you’re in the Redding, CA. area, you won’t need to pay shipping and handling as long as you’re available for pick-up.  If you’re not in the Redding area, please plan on paying shipping fees.

100% of the profits from the  painting sales go directly to the artists.  Thanks for supporting art in Gulu!

    1. We hope to have it on our site later this month, but it’s been selling locally faster than we can keep up with, which is a great problem to have. We have very few pieces left. We suggest looking on our Facebook page, where pieces for sale are in our photo albums. If you see something you’d like to buy, leave us a comment on Facebook and we’ll work with you. Many of our non-local purchasers have found that to be a great way to buy the pieces they want before they’re sold.

We’re a rag-tag group of people vigilantly pursuing self-sustaining educational & employment opportunities with and for students and their families living in rural communities in developing countries. We believe in asking hard questions like, “What do you need and how can we help?” We believe that communities know their needs better than we do and that it’s our job to listen. We’re big on being kind for the sake of kindness and we believe that even the smallest acts of kindness can make a big difference. We believe in keeping vigil over one another and watching for opportunities to help, no matter how far off the beaten path those opportunities take us. We’re vigilant in our belief that God has given each person unique gifts and that one of the highest forms of worship is using those gifts to serve others. We believe God has a purpose for each life and Vigilante Kindness is our purpose. Join us as we live out wild adventures in service of God and others. Join us in committing acts of Vigilante Kindness.
