31 Bits launched their brand new HQ located in Costa Mesa (a mere 3 blocks away from my apt). Attendees were able to enjoy the exclusive 31 Bits store, drinks and yummy snacks as well as food trucks, and a dance floor!
31 Bits sells jewelry consisting of 100% recycled paper made by women in Northern Uganda, and the designs can be found at over 100 boutiques and major retailers in the US and around the world!
Mission31 Bits Designs Northern Uganda is designed to empower vulnerable individuals to rise above poverty through maximizing creative abilities and generating opportunities for sustainable livelihoods. In the 31 Bits program, the women earn an income that allows them to provide for their families, receive financial and savings training, and maximize their creative skills and abilities. We strive to build a loving community that cares for individuals’ spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical needs.
31 Bits is a Community Based Organization, based out of Gulu, Uganda. We work with displaced women who use their talents to create beautiful jewelry made from recycled paper. 31 Bits is centered around using the creative art and entrepreneurship already present in the women, which empowers them and enables them to have a sustainable income.
