Our recycled products from waste
We have trained over 75 persons with disabilities as trainers for trainers in their communities who now able to create their own employment as creative mindful citizens.
Up-cycled over 30,000 Kgs of plastics into over 9,000 products which have been sold in Uganda and abroad through our sales partners like NATURKOSMETIC-BERLIN, Rich everyday, Edro designs, SINA-shops etc hence preventing the environment from over 93000 Kilograms of Carbon dioxide emissions.
Employed over 120 youths who serve on contracts as waste collectors enabling them to earn a living hence cubbing the rampant unemployment rate in Uganda which is approximately 83%.
Reached over 20,0000 through our sensitization programs in schools, children camps, rural communities, fashion shows and social media to support on preventing, reducing, re-using, re-cycling and upcycling waste. This has supported us to transform the perception of the society that disability is not inability and that plastic is a resource which cannot be consumed as disposable.
Our up cycled rain jacket from old sugar sacks, fabricated by hearing impaired rural Ugandans in partnership with Ugo Mozie (Fashion Designer) made it for display at the United Nations Global Goals Week, a collective effort to maximize the value of events and activation held during the opening of the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly.
We made it as one of the best 2018 Africa Education Innovations by the African Union and published in their hand book creating maximum visibility for our transforming work across the globe.
“People from outside wear these jackets. But why not Ugandans? Which makes us super sad,” Namujju says. “We want 90% of Ugandans wearing these jackets, wearing these masks, because I feel that we can also reduce plastic waste disposal in Uganda.”
