Kinawataka Women Initiatives

Published on June 13, 2016

Kinawataka Women Initiatives (KIWOI) was formed in 1998 to empower marginalized women in the Kinawataka slum of Kampala through environmentally conscious economic projects. The organization is led by founder and Executive Director Benedicta Nanyonga and has trained over 734 women across Uganda. KIWOI is environmental focused and recycles used straws into crafts such as bags, mats and jewelry to reduce the amount of discarded plastic waste.
