We support hard-working women in Kampala and Jinja to promote  empowerment, independence and improved health. One project we have already contributed funding to is a piggery that generates income for vulnerable women in Jinja.

The manufacturing of the colorful paper beads is a fascinating & time consuming process. We work with talented & hard-working women eager to provide for their children. And, we buy our products at fair market prices. More soon!!!

Join us on Social Media...We have a facebook page (Tugende Design) & we  are active on Twitter. And, of course, please visit our shop www.etsy.com/shop/TugendeDesign

​​Prof.  Swahn is the Director for the Tugende Design Initiative. She is highly committed to supporting vulnerable women & children through her research, community support &  fundraising.  

We are so excited to create new exciting designs using paper beads & colorful fabrics. We love working with our many partners &  community-based organizations, primarily in Kampala & Jinja, to support the women & children in need.
