How to Launch a Sewing Workshop in Uganda

How to Launch a Sewing Workshop in Uganda

We launched Mazuri Designs ethical fashion label in the Luzira slum district of Kampala Uganda this past January 2016.  Learn about our team's initial marketing strategies on how they plan to get the word out about our workshop in their community. Some of their ideas are quite brilliant!

Generosity in Giving During the Holidays

Generosity in Giving During the Holidays

Have you heard of Giving Tuesday but wonder what people are talking about?  December is the time of year when people are generous of spirit, thinking of others and wanted to spread cheer.  Officially the first Tuesday of December, Giving Tuesday kicks off a month-long drive to donate your time or a financial gift to a group that relies on community support.

Meeting Mazuri

Meeting Mazuri

Being a volunteer Advisor to Mazuri, I wanted to visit Kampala and meet the team, see the workshop, and get a better understanding of how tailoring businesses worked in Uganda.  Come along as I visit the bustling fabric market in the city and have a custom dress made.
