The Buyamba footwear brand was created as a means to help others in need. Uganda is a beautiful country in Africa that is currently in economic despair, and much help is needed. The Country has been ravaged by war and the onslaught of the HIV virus. Through the creation of jobs and the education of children you can help us make an immediate and significant difference in the Lives of many Ugandan women and children. Buyamba in the local language means “to help” and our credo is Helping Souls in Need™.
Buyamba aims to identify indigenous handmade crafts that can be sold into broader markets by incorporating them into footwear designs. We are looking to create jobs through the marketing and sales of these products. Our goal is to train, teach, and empower the women.
We believe that the future of Uganda and the future of this generation as a whole rests upon our children. The legacy we leave behind will be echoed in these children for years to come. Our goal is to leave a legacy of Hope and Love. Hope in mankind, and the Love filled compassion capable of breaking down barriers and bridging the socio-economic gaps that separate us. Can something as simple as a paper bead change someone’s life? Simply stated, yes, it can.
