Iryn Namubiru, one of Uganda’s top Divas is going to auction off her shoes today to raise funds for ‘Gather For Children’, an NGO she founded in 2006 in conjunction with the Namukozi West women’s group.
“If you’ve ever liked my fashion, come ready to bid. Come buy a pair of my shoes and put shoes on a child in Mityana,” Namubiru said through her social media platform. She also added that “Please bring any good quality used or new shoes for boys and girls between the ages of 1 to 14 years to support my efforts and also support less privileged children.”
The Gather For Children is a Community Based Organization in Mityana, Namabale and Namukozi that supports women to farm and feed their children by providing the land, equipment and other necessities and last Wednesday, Iryn gathered and gave out items that included blankets and bed-sheets, clothes, sleeping bags and farming materials like hoes and gumboots to the less privileged.
