Who We Are
Mama pendo, meaning The Mother of Love in Kiswahili, is the jewelry brand of the "Umoja" women empowerment group from Namuwongo slum, working under "Little Light" NGO in Kampala, Uganda.
The initiative comes to improve the life status of these women, some of which are refugees from the war ridden territories of Uganda, some single mothers struggling to give their children a proper education. The first and most basic need is to build their financial and social strength and independence.
