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 is a labour of love for everyone involved and we really hope you like what we have to offer and will tell all your friends about us.

The easiest way to show your support is with a click of the mouse to 'like' us on facebook and may seem a little thing but it does help to get the message out there.

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:

  • 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.

This video was filmed and edited by Ian Warren and the music is performed by the children who are part of our programme with our women's group in Makerere (MAWDA).

A special thanks to Sarah (who was too shy to speak but was willing to share) and her baby Jackson.
