This blog shows my recycled denim creations, along with tutorials for items I have designed myself. I collect old jeans (a strange collection, I know!) and cut them up to make bags, purses, animals and other items of varying sizes and shapes. I then sell these to raise money for weomen and children in the town of Utange, near Mombasa, in Kenya. I help women to set up their own businesses and provide solar lights to enable teachers and pupils to work at home after the sun sets.
... but we have a visitor at the school where I teach.
Pastor John Kahindi, who oversees the orphanage and feeding programme which I support with my bags, is visiting the UK and our school. It is courtesy of a British Council grant, and today was his first day in school (of four). The weather welcomed him with his first ever experience of snow - just one among a plethora of new experiences!
