Jewelry on Consignment - Cicero UMC

A wonderful way for your church, youth or women’s group to make a difference and help your own cause as well.  Cicero United Methodist Church has been working with “United Methodist Empowerment Center of Jinja” an Advance Special helping people in Uganda to rise out of poverty.  In this program we sell paper beaded jewelry of bracelets, necklaces and ear rings in a Fair Trade form.  All the money that is made goes back to the artisans or to programs they are forming to change lives.  At this time, we have a school up to the 5th grade, but need four more rooms built to complete the elementary school.  We have nine acres of land purchased, with 7 more to be paid, so they can begin to have their own income to help their programs.  We have three widows who are starting a goat farm to bring them out of poverty.  We have one pastor who has received a motorcycle for income and he has now purchased pigs from that income to put his family of four children in good economic stability. How can you be involved?  1. If you already have a Fall Festival, Christmas Bazaar, Mission Weekend Event, we would be willing to provide you with jewelry to be sold and part of the income would be for your own programs.  2.  If you would like for someone to come and speak to a group about this program and bring jewelry to sell.  3.  If you would like to have a display at your church and partner with us on an ongoing basis.  Contact Cicero United Methodist Church and we can set you up for ways to change lives.  317-984-4971
