It takes a lot to impress this fickle blogger, but I am just itching to get one of those Sun Dresses, with a matching bag and may be a necklace. (Yup – My Banker just rolled her eyes.)
Anyway, here is a little bit on Awava
At Awava, we believe in order to reach sustainable peace in Uganda and beyond, access to resources is essential. These resources include access to a reliable financial income, clean water, education and food.
Our mission is not one of charity, but of economic empowerment, for you “give a woman a fish and you feed her for a day. Teach a woman to fish and you feed her for a lifetime.” In assisting Awava’s artisans with design and providing Western market access, we at Awava are not only providing a space in which marginalized Women in Uganda can sell their masterpieces, but ensuring that these products will sell. By ensuring the sale of these products at a fair price, Awava’s artisans will be able to gain access to precious resources, therefore empowering themselves through their skills.
