Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
In 2014, AFFCAD launched The AFFCAD Unique Fashion and Designs, an emerging tailoring brand show casing Africa’s finest prints hand made by youth from Bwaise. Unique hires former BYEC trainees to make clothes, school uniforms, shoes etc from local fabric. The products are sold to community and some exported for income generations to sustain BYEC.
2015, we have established a studio for our former trainees to offer photography and videography, computer graphics and secretarial services at a small cost.
Since 2011, AFFCAD has been running Excel Education Centre, its community that provided education to 200 orphans and vulnerable children with from Bwaise slums.
