Kimuli Fashionability Building inclusive communities while reducing waste accumulation

Kimuli Fashionability creates up-cycled fashion and increases on the employability of the physically impaired and deaf people through training them with free hands-on skills of creative tailoring. Training them with creative tailoring skills turns their disability into an opportunity of creating their own employment while saving the environment from the dangers of plastic waste accumulation and toxins generated through burning. African fabrics are blended with waste materials. In the absence of hearing, deaf people for example often have heightened kinesthetic and visual abilities resulting in high quality products with love for detail. We give employment opportunities to the deaf and have empowered 25 persons who are now self-sustainable. Many of their peers are seen as cursed or bewitched by Ugandan society and often kept indoors due to shame of the family because of their disability. This is why our sensitization programs in schools and fashion shows create awareness.
