The girls here at Imbabazi are smart, beautiful, AND multi-talented. One of their many talents includes knitting and crocheting, which we have recently turned into a community service project by making hats for kids in the community. Because it can get rather chilly at this altitude, this has been a great way to help keep kids in our area warm while at the same time engaging Imbabazi in projects that benefit the wider community. The hats are distributed to newborns and children through the local health clinic in our district.
In addition, as part of the tourism project that we are currently developing at Imbabazi, some of the products knitted by the girls will be available for sale to visitors at the orphanage. The money raised from these sales will be put towards expenses like school fees and supplies. A big thank you for all of the generous yarn donations received from visitors and friends of Imbabazi, without which these projects would not have been possible. If you would like more information on our community service or tourism projects, or if you would like to donate yarn, please contact us!
