We became good friends with the people from United4Change who had a stall at AFW as part of their Fashion for Change campaign.We we're really impressed with charity work they were doing in Kibera, Kenya which is the largest slum in Africa.
"The United4Change vision is to gather and knit together people across the globe from all different walks of life and educate, inspire and empower them to creatively and actively challenge poverty and social injustice. We aim to make a difference in the lives of the world’s poorest by discovering ways to empower and equip people to transform their own lives and consequently their own communities, thus breaking the cycle of poverty forever."
