Uganda, now home to some of the world’s largest refugee camps, is a country well-known for its craftsmanship and artisanal capabilities.
In order to support Uganda’s economy, alongside EFI’s social enterprise partners in Kenya, Artisan Fashion, EFI now collaborates with a number of handicraft groups in the country, where palm leaf weaving is a predominant skill, and the raw material is cut and dyed to make beautiful baskets and other homeware.
EFI is also developing a plastics project in the region. The European Union supports EFI activities in Uganda through the Identity Building and Sharing Business Initiative.
