Artisanal Skilling of a housemaid in Uganda offers them an alternative source of income during their idle time. In the daily routine of a housemaid, they begin their tasks around 6:00 am, diligently attending to household chores until approximately 10 or 11:00 am. However, beyond these responsibilities, a significant portion of their day often goes to waste as they find themselves idle. Many resort to activities like watching TV, lounging at home, taking naps, or engaging with neighbors to pass the time.
This surplus of unutilized time presents a unique opportunity to channel their energy and potential toward something constructive that could supplement their income and enhance their overall empowerment.
In light of this, we proudly introduce the Mukozi Skilling Project—a groundbreaking initiative designed to equip housemaids with valuable artisanal skills. By developing these skills, they can harness their creativity and industry from the comfort of their homes, creating products that can later be brought to our shop for sale, thereby generating additional income.
Our skilling project encompasses two major engaging activities, including:
Crochet Making: Enabling participants to craft intricate and beautiful crochet items, adding an artistic touch to everyday life.
Tailoring Crafts: Nurturing their sewing abilities, allowing them to design and create unique crafts that we shall sell in our shops to help them earn an extra income and support their families back home.
Do you desire to partner with us?
To ensure the success and wide-reaching impact of the Mukozi Skilling Project, we welcome partnerships with various stakeholders, including:
Developmental Partners: Especially organizations dedicated to socio-economic development, we aim to integrate our skilling project into a larger framework that uplifts marginalized communities.
Churches: These institutions play a vital role in community outreach and support. By partnering with churches, we can effectively reach and empower a broader audience.
Schools: Teachers have families that have house helps with whom they leave their families.
Together, through the Mukozi Skilling Project, we aspire to transform idle hours into moments of inspiration, creativity, and financial growth for domestic house helps in Uganda. By equipping housemaids with artisanal skills, we strive to catalyze positive change, not only in their individual lives but also in the fabric of their families.
