All our products made in Uganda are created by 5 young women, who are wheelchair-bound. They operate under the name Kampala Disabled Initiatives, and they own a shop-atelier in Kampala, the capital of Uganda, which was established with help from NGO Mondo and Estonian development assistance. Pictured is one of KDI-s seamstresses, Night Nalwoga (35), who loves working at the atelier, because it has a great atmosphere, and creates the feeling that the women are “doing their own thing”. Night says that through working together in the cooperation, the women have learned to trust and support each other, work hard, and be more independent. During the years 2014-2015, designer Liina Viira was in Kampala to help the women, and on the picture, Night is holding the Weekender bag, designed by Liina and made by herself.
