Mon Qua and BeadforLife Marketplace: Shop for a Cause
Wednesday, Nov. 13 | 10 A.M.–2 P.M. | Mammel Hall Atrium
Shop fair trade microenterprise — featuring beautiful, affordable jewelry made from recycled paper and 100% hemp products.
A series of events in November and December are aimed at educating the University of Nebraska at Omaha community and the public about a new microenterprise — Mon Qua Gifts — that helps ethnic minority women in Vietnam overcome poverty.
Beautiful, 100% hemp products from Vietnam will be on sale at each event.
Mon Qua means “gift” in Vietnamese, and these new products are just that — a gift of economic opportunity for those who make them, a gift of meaning to those who support them, and unique gifts for giving.
