Program Dedicated To The Youth
Around The World
My name is Maja Kotala and I've started a platform which aim is to support the youth from around the World.
In 2018, I wrote an educational, non-profit program called Sewing Together, which goal is to teach a skill of designing, sewing and business of fashion, to be able to build a self sustainable work place.
I have now successfully completed the course in Uganda - Kimuli Fashionability and in Kenya with Nairobi Girls Training Center.
Regardless of the 2020 difficulties, with Mwambanga Mwashimba we opened in October a new Training Center for Women in Nyali Mombasa.
In 2021 we opened a permanent Sewing Together place of creation in Bamburi: EKotala School for women .
I would like to welcome you to my journey, and if you feel like joining the mission, please contact me here .
