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. EFI’s projects in Uganda are proudly supported by the European Union’s Identity Building and Business Sharing Initiative.
