One of my favorite new(to me) companies is Light Gives Heat, www.lightgivesheat.org. They work in Uganda and are doing amazing things with women in Jinja. They employ around ninety women making beautiful jewelry and bags.
Check out this video about them,

then go to their website and get a really cool gift for someone. You won't be disappointed and you will be making a difference!
