Mending cracks

I decided to collect and repair uniforms of kids at Mathaer Slum, Nairobi. Patches are made out of pricy red Kashmir. Kids were given new uniforms. Women from the slum were working with me on repairing; they saw it as a symbolic act of mending cracks in their own lives. Mended pullovers are going to be offered for sale as a unique piece at Pamoja Goods store. The income is going to support Cooperative Ushirkia.

Pamoja is a foundation, which gives scholarships for students in Kenya and established Ushirika Cooperative with whom I was cooperating when being in Nairobi this summer.
