Video: how awamu works
I can't believe that this time last year we were just arriving back to the London from six months in Africa. Awamu was born (by accident) in our last few days in Uganda....we hadn't intend this to happen - it just did! Nulu Nabunya from one for women’s groups in Kampala, explains how every purchase or donation you make has an impact on the children in their community in this short video….
Awamu means together in L'uganda, the main language spoken in Kampala. We started our project because we were totally bowled over by the drive, dedication and talents of the women in the groups we work with.
Together we want to create a sustainable outlet for our women's groups. Enabling more women involved in the projects we’re working with to earn a living so they can care for their families and raise money to send the orphaned children in their care to go to school.
How it works:
- We make the highest quality hand-made children’s clothes, animals and accessories for you to enjoy.
- Our tailors and craft women learn new skills and earn a decent wage for what they make.
- 100% of the money raised through the sale of awamu goods and donations is used to provide education grants so children in our projects are healthier, happier and can go to school.
