The one year old but strongly growing business uses the sell of Kitengi material to support a local charity, Abaana Abaidho Organisation, an NGO in Buwenge.

The NGO is trying to improve livelihoods of underprivileged children in Jinja by providing them with an opportunity to identify, learn and practice their art talents. The organisation also provides tailoring skills to the girl child and needy women in the community and that’s where Tengi Styles come in.

Meanwhile, 2018 was the year of ‘Kitenge’ fashion. From the red carpet to casual evenings to formal wear, kitenge dominated  every occasion. And it is expected to continue trending in 2019.
