Tulinawe is Lugandan for 'we are with you'.
Our vision is to stand alongside the local community in Kampala, Uganda and provide support to individuals and families. There is no agenda, just a desire to do good, led by those who know the community best.
We have no interest in passing judgement on any situation. Our only objective is to mobilise resources to create sustainable change for vulnerable families and individuals in need, and ensure that they have some where to turn.
Mandazi Workshops - Autumn 2021
This month, Tulinawe funded two street food cooking workshops with the aim of supporting individuals to set up self employed enterprises that would enable them to earn a living.
Mandazi is a fried food snack that is highly in popular in East Africa. Our workshop trainer has a local business and has built up a fine reputation as having the best Mandazi in the area.
The workshops ran at full capacity, and all individuals left with the knowledge of how to make Mandazi, as well as a batch of the product that was market ready, to sell in their own communities. 95% of attendees generated revenue and profit within one week. They have now reinvested their earnings to purchase the essential materials needed to repeat the process, whilst generating enough revenue to earn a living.
We are continuing to support them as they embed their sustainable enterprises.
Post-Lockdown Relief Packages - Summer 2021
It has been a difficult summer as Uganda faced a long lockdown period and as a result the communities in Kampala faced many challenges.
As soon as the lockdown was partially lifted and movement was allowed by the Ugandan Government, the Tulinawe team had a brainstorming session. We looked at how to best support the local community who had been immensely affected by the length of the lockdown.
As a team, we designed a relief package project to reach some of the most vulnerable individuals and families within the communities we work in. We all know that having access to essential basics is so important, and so our packages included many basic items such as sanitary towels, rice, posho, beans, sugar and soap.
We were proud to be able to distribute our relief packages to 43 families in the areas of Naguru, Mutungo, Kisenyi and Kisaasi. Driven by their desire to help, our community workers worked hard to prepare and distribute these relief packages to the identified families, whilst also being personally affected by what they saw around them.
