Due to failure to raise funds to join higher levels of learning, in 2016 we met at Social Innovation Academy in Mpigi-Uganda, an organization empowering marginalized youth to turn their life and community challenges into social businesses. We discovered that all our lives were victimized by our parents being disabled and due to true life experiences/passion towards conserving the environment, we gained an inspiration that became a turning point towards the establishment of Kimuli Fashionability.
To create unique garments using upcycled textile and plastic waste blended with traditional African fabrics manufactured by people with disability.
To be the most recognized disability inclusive, eco-fashion label in Africa.
