How awamu works


For every beautiful item produced and sold there is an equally beautiful change happening in the communities of our tailors in Kampala – every penny raised through sales and donations is used to support orphaned and vulnerable children and to train women with the skills they need to support their families.

Awamu means ‘together’ in Luganda the main language spoken in Kampala, Uganda. We chose it as it reflects the name and spirit of both the women’s groups that we work with.

We are passionate about changing the lives of children in the slums of Kampala and we love handmade, ethical production and creating a connection between you and the women who put their time, skill and loving care into making these items for you.

We are a social enterprise working with ActionAid Uganda and labour of love for everyone who volunteers their time to get involved.

We really hope you like what we have to offer and will tell all your friends about us.

With love from everyone at awamu
