The one of a kind fashion show saw models with disabilities and albinism take on the runway alongside the able-bodied persons. They showcased different collections by an inclusive cast of top designers who included Elijah Macquinn, Doris Sabiiti, Muyomba Julius, Mihunde and Kori House of Couture & Design among others.

Held under the theme, “breaking myths”, the fashion show which is now in its second edition aimed to debunk stereotypes and myths about the differently abled persons that perpetuate inequality by exposing the artistic and creative talents of persons with disabilities.

Addressing guests at the fashion show, Michelle Omamteker, the Executive Director Malengo Foundation emphasized the need for inclusive development so as to enable every individual in society realise their full potential.

“Inclusive development is who we are about!” She stated. “Development says lets move forward, but  inclusive development says lets move forward and ensure that no one is left behind.”

“When we focus on inclusive development we see how much society is losing out on. In order to leave no one behind especially regarding disability issues and disability rights, we must focus on eclipsing development at every discussion of the development agenda.” She added.

Malengo Foundation is a youth-led organization actively participating in creatively propagating all the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (The Global Goals) to youth across the African continent with specific reference to Goal 10 for Reduced Inequalities.

Here are some photos from the fashion show:

Below is his speech after the official handover of the travel facility.

“It’s was a great morning as I presented a BUS to WAKISO GIANTS FC at the home ground in Wakiso.

Upon my recent travel around the USA 2018,

As I was on my way to Phoenix I fortunately sat next to one kind Man, As we chatted he took me though an adventure of his business. I also shared to him who I was which got him overwhelmed and upon off boarding the flight we shared contacts and promised to reach out each other again.

Yes we did when I met him again In Oregon, we talked about passions in which I told him of what I do beyond music. I love sports and – Wakiso Giants FC my team that I have loved and supported regardless!!

He picked a lot of interest and asked me what best he can contribute to us.

On more talk he mentioned that he had a bus company and asked Whether giving WAKISO GIANTS one would make a change. I was so happy and immediately reached the administration of this team because he only gave a bus to the team and wasn’t responsible to ship and pay tax for it.

Long story short the Bus is finally here and today morning I officially handed it to the team together with the FUFA president Mr. Moses Magogo

I am so proud that we have ability that we can exploit if given a chance. PURPLE SHARKS – Enjoy your bus LEONE ISLAND MUSIC EMPIRE” Chameleone affirmed.
