We couldn’t find protective masks for our team, so we partnered with local fashion designer Mirembe Tendaji, to manufacture our own. With a single social media post, orders poured in from across the country. Some bought to donate to the most vulnerable. In addition to hiring a few sewists, a couple of bored teenagers unable to attend school received training to assist in the effort. It’s beautiful to experience what ordinary Americans can do when our backs are up against the wall.
