They have been handmade for you by Sarah Kabenge and whether you’re buying for yourself or a friend, you know you are making a real difference when you buy from awamu because you are also giving a wonderful gift of education to vulnerable children and helping mum’s like Sarah in the slums of Kampala.
We use 100% of our income from all our items to support orphaned children in two of the poorest areas of Kampala and train mothers like Sarah in the skills they need to support their family.
Sarah explains for herself how learning tailoring skills has changed her life in this short film we made with her. It’s only a few minutes long – we hope you like it.
Thank you again to everyone that has waited so patiently since we sold out after being featured in the Telegraph gift guide.
We’re be adding more and more into the shop over the coming weeks. Happy Easter!
Tom was ecstatic when he was able to enroll in school
We’ve just added even more gifts in our shop with prices starting from as little as £3!
Whether you’re buying for a favourite aunt or a hard-to-buy-for friend, you know you are making a real difference when you buy from awamu because you are also giving a wonderful gift of education to orphaned children like Tom in the slums of Kampala.
Tom was ecstatic when he found out his dream of enrolling in school would finally come true. Here is a little film we made with Tom and his Aunty so they can tell you for themselves how awamu is changing their lives.
