Tatu Rafiki receive an Act Of Kindness from you!

Updated: Nov 2, 2021

A grant £350 has been awarded to ‘Tatu Rafiki’, a group of 3 deaf tailors who have been able to use their grant to purchase more tools and materials to improve the quality of their work and increase capacity to meet larger overseas orders. Their plan is to create financial independence and sustainability from the grant through training other local deaf people to become skilled tailors.

“In general this grant will help us to increase income to our enterprise and to our individuals. As a team we are sewing Batik fabric products with fine finishing, and we also mentor deaf young girls and boys in this career - that makes us unique.”

– Polkarp, head tailor at Tatu Rafiki
