David and Project Kenya
In June 2019, Project Kenya launched a sewing program with Uweza Young Mothers, teaching them how to make reusable sanitary pads or diapers. We bought some sewing machines and left them with some Kitenge fabrics. Few weeks later, Uweza asked David Avido to come and share his knowledge with them. "There is nothing amazing like sharing your passion with individuals that are really passionate to learn your passion.
