Something to make you smile – this is what happens when you buy from awamu…
Children supported by AWAMU happy after receiving scholastic materials for the second term. Thanks to AWAMU for the support given to our children here in Kampala Uganda.
One of the biggest challenges is sourcing the fabrics and products that don’t damage the environment or have an impact on another community.
To find these things ourselves takes a huge amount of time and research but you might be able to help us….
If you are thinking of having a spring clean and you have thread, buttons or cotton fabric (or any natural fabric) around please consider donating it to us.
Please get in touch if you can help.
Don’t know about you, but as the days grow darker in the UK, we grow fonder and fonder of our sofa. So we’ve made ours a colourful, cosy nest for hibernating in with some of our beautiful new cushions handmade for you by Sarah Kabenge.
They are 100% cotton, hard wearing and whether it is education grants or skills training that helps guardians earn an income, every penny we raise through sales and donations goes towards projects that are making life better for kids like Tom and Jaliya.

We will be at Camden Lock Night Market on Thursday 29th November from 5-10pm for an evening of shopping, music, good food and workshops.
The evening will be accompanied by beautiful music from the Salvation Army and Camden Lock favourites Camden Guitars performing Christmas songs played in a Spanish style (yes really!)…so why not take a walk down Camden memory lane with us 🙂
Public Transport: Camden Lock Market can be easily reached by Tube or Overground. Camden Town and Camden Road are the closest two stations.
Parking: Parking is free around Camden from 6.30pm.
Whether you’re the kind to count down the shopping days or leave it ‘til Christmas Eve, we have some perfect gifts for the special folks in your life.
From stocking fillers for under a tenner, vintage baubles (coming later this week) to our unique and colourful homeware and children’s gifts.
Each item has been lovingly handmade by amazing crafts women in Kampala – Robina Nalumansi, Sarah Kabenge, Rukia Ramathan, Florence, Sarah Namaganda and Salima Najingo using their super powered tailoring skills.
And what better than to gift a that will not only give them joy but also empowers the woman that made it and helps to protect and educate a children in two of the poorest slum areas of Kampala.
