The Swahili word kipaji means
- ability, talent
- gift, present
Tukutana's Kipaji Project brings this word to life by helping East African women develop abilities and cultivate talents through our Sowing Change program. Many of the ladies in our program choose to learn sewing skills so they can earn income to feed, clothe, and educate their children.
Seamstresses, in training, practice by making drawstring bags out of colorful African fabrics called Kitenge. The are bags are filled with school supplies, soaps, toothbrushes, etc. (gifts/presents) and donated to ministries, orphan homes, community-based projects, hospitals, villages and schools across Uganda.
Tukutana staff and volunteers provide Kabaji Project beneficiaries with hygiene and other trainings pertinent to the gifts they receive.
