Scattered across Uganda, are groups of hard working women creating beautiful, traditional crafts to sell to both locals & of course tourists. One thing people always notice about the people of Uganda are the brightly coloured clothes and beautiful fabric prints – Kitenge. We work with several women’s craft groups across the Kabale region in South West Uganda in an effort to boost their sales, shake up the products on offer and improve quality – teaching them new skills whilst preserving traditional crafts. This gives these women a sustainable income & promotes the diverse and colourful culture that Uganda has to offer.
Each of our groups have varying skills with crafts, some are great with baskets, some with jewellery, some with table mats. Either way, we take note of each woman’s skill and help them develop and improve. We provide them with materials & we bring them new and exciting designs to work on. Most importantly we purchase these items at a fair price.
Since 2013 we have run sewing workshops on a regular basis for members of our groups. We also provide additional workshops covering a variety of topics, English, health & nutrition
All profits from the sale of these crafts, are fed back into the groups through training, equipment & materials.
