Beautiful bags

Omushana Admin |


During 2019 we created a partnership between Bias Boutique and the Bwindi Community Vocational School. The tailoring students and graduates are creating lovely totebags which Bias offers to customers for a £2.50 donation.

The money raised helps the students pay their course fees while gaining new skills.

Bias Boutique in Harrogate has been supporting Omushana for many years, especially our Afripads project which supplies washable sanitary pads to school girls all around the Bwindi Forest. Hundreds of girls have received pads over the past few years. They are continuing to raise funds in 2020 alongside the bag sales. 

Here are some pictures of the students with some of the fabrics and the bags they created during November 2019.
