How will we use the grant money if we win?

We would use the money to help expand our business in new regions. Currently O4O is working with artisans in 5 countries in sub-Saharan Africa (Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Malawi, and Swaziland), with 14 artisan groups, that employ over 90 people. These artisans represent an immediate impact of over 500 individuals, not to mention the ripple effect on their communities, countries and generations to come. This year Ornaments 4 Orphans hopes to expand our impact with new groups in Burundi and Ethiopia.

This grant would enable us to widen our impact and bring opportunity, hope and change to many families and communities in Africa.

Thank you for being a part of our mission of dignity and generosity.
