Meet the wonderful Fortunate, tailor and great friend to OrphFund.
She was trained at the OrphFund Sewing School and she is now teaching our kids sewing and tailoring skills at the Kasese Children’s Village.
The Orphfund sewing School was an original idea back in 2011, from an individual volunteer Angela Mezzatesta, who felt inspired to take her Orphfund volunteer experience and create something completely new. What began from a single inspired idea 7 years ago has blossomed.
We are excited to be building sustainable career pathways for our junior tailors under Fortunate’s direction.
Fortunate’s work is available in Australia through Rwencraft, as well as the new OrphFund Label: NinaKaBoomBoom which will be available very soon at OrphFund Market Stalls.
