For the last eleven years, we have worked in rural communities in east Uganda. Amayinja Crafts became one of our projects. Initially to empower women and to create a market for their products abroad.
Today, Amayinja Crafts has become a creative outlet, not only for the women and men in Uganda, but more so for ourselves , whether through fashionable jewelry, knitwear or other trendy things like shoes or bags. There are products with an African touch, and moreover with our own, personal, touch. Upscaling and recycling and making our own glass beads are our favorites.
Amayinja Crafts is inseperably connected to Egoli Africa. We love to create with our hands, but we also love to create a future for others. Buy an Amayinja Crafts product and it gives space to create new things, but it also adds to us being able to pay schooling for a group of children in Uganda and to keep things moving within our own projects. It helps us to make the circle of elderly people within our goats project grow. It helps to assist Natasha and Favor, whose grandparents are not able to buy even the simple things like shoes, clothes, toiletpaper and toothpaste for their granddaughters. It helps us to help our fresh sandal makers make their first steps to the market. And it helps us to buy the finest cloths for our fashion designers to be in the tailoring section.
