Tukula (meaning "we grow") is an accessories line based in Jinja, Uganda. We hire young women who are trained as seamstresses but aren't able to find consistent work.
Along with a fair wage these women receive medical care, an encouraging work environment, and access to savings programs. In addition to our full time employees, we provide paid interships for women who are on the verge of dropping out of sewing school so that they can continue with their studies and receive a job immediatly after graduating.
By relieving the pressure of school fees, medical fees, and daily expenses, these ladies are able to walk with confidence and joy.
