Fashion shows(Creative & Inclusive)

We organize fashion shows where the disabled showcase the products, they make from waste to raise funds and change people’s mind-set on the way they see disability not as an inability and creating awareness around the waste problem.

During our fashion shows 70% of the models are persons with disabilities and ensure that at least 70% is creative, up-cycled and recycled work to instill the sense of exclusivity and circular economy within our communities.

We have so far organized 2 successful fashion shows and now we are aiming to secure more partnerships with inclusive organizations like “Malengo Foundation” and organize these shows depending on regions so that we can reach more people for mindset shift.

Community sensitization( Ground awareness).

We organize sensitization programs in schools, children
Camps(here with collaborative partners like KALEKE KASOME, HEDCO etc), and rural communities to support reducing, preventing, re-using, re-cycling and upcycling waste so that we can achieve a plastic circular economy.

Early mindset shift within children natures children into sustainable-minded citizens with waste management skills e.g waste separation which enables re-use of all categories of waste.

Making Good of Waste

Socent_hub

This rainy season got #better with @kimulifashiinability as our #entrepreneur@kiggunduCyrus presents the best and cost friendly raincoats. These are made out of a smooth cotton African fabric that makes it comfortable with your skin inside with a little warmth and the outer most part is put together with valve sacks particularly from a sugar factory. This raincoat has capacity to keep you dry amidst these wet days. @einsteinrising

Creative skills training (Empowering PWDS)

We train persons with disabilities(those with physical and hearing impairments) free hands on skills of creative tailoring on how to turn plastic waste into fashion. Training them with creative tailoring skills turns their disability into an opportunity of creating their own employment while saving the environment from plastic waste accumulation.

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.
After collection, the waste is washed, dried and cut to different shapes/patterns depending on the design of the product to be made.

The pieces are then blended with African fabrics like (Kitengi, Sisal, Barkcloth, Kikooyi etc) into unique fashionable garments like raincoats, pants etc and accessories like shopping bags, wallets, laptop cases, make-up kits, pencil cases, door and table mats etc
