Beads Program in Savanette

Missions International of America co-founder, Jan Meier-Nielsen has found a way to help 50 Haitians profit from a new business that could well be described as modern-day alchemy. Using paper from scrapbooks and the pages of magazines, 4 men and 46 women, last year, made an income of $400 plus, over the yearly income of the average Haitian. The wares magicked from these unlikely materials include crosses and coasters, in a setting that harkens even more to fantasy for the dirt floors and candlelit ambiance in which they were created.
