We work with an amazing group of women in Uganda providing fair wages for their creative works. We frequently sell jewelry at the Farmers Market in South Bend, Indiana. We are looking for volunteers to work at the market selling the products(jewelry made from recycled paper and other crafts) the women make. The market is open Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, with Saturday being the busiest day. Tuesdays and Thursdays the hours are 8-3, but can be a shorter time in that range. Saturdays are 7-3, with you arriving at the market by 6am. The hours on Saturdays aren't really flexible.
Responsibilities would include:
talking with customers about the mission and work of LOT2545 (we will brief you before you begin with FAQ)
recording sales and reconciling money at the end of each shift
turning in money from sales and inventory sheet after each shift to Volunteer Coordinator
If you aren't local to South Bend, but have a great market or other opportunity in your community and would like to sell jewelry there, please let us know.
You can see the women's work at our Etsy shop, www.etsy.com/shop/lot2545
LOT 2545 works to provide true justice and compassion for the least of these in Uganda by providing opportunities to heal and pave their own way for a better future.
We work in Kampala, Uganda with teenage boys that used to call the streets home. We provide a safe space, off the streets, where they can begin to heal and prepare for their futures. We also work with a wonderful group of ladies, providing fair wages for their handmade creative works.
