A Mask for a Mask Project.
Giving Back During the covid19
How did the project start?
With the fight against the Covid-19 Mask wearing has become very important in the fight against the spread of the Corona virus.
We believe everyone deserve a chance to be protected, especially those at risk and who cannot afford or have no access. That is why
I decided to start my project by producing the masks in my atelier using my collection of African fabrics which I collected during my travels in Africa. They are made to order and sold here to enable me to raise funds for setting up a mask producing project within Zambia. There the masks are distributed to those who are at risk and can’t afford to buy or make one. Hence our slogan “A Mask for a Mask”
I have already started to teach the ladies in a small atelier in Zambia how to make high quality masks. Currently they are working extremely hard to produce the masks locally.
What does it actually mean when you order a mask?
For every mask you buy we are able to produce 5 masks to give to the people in Mansa, Zambia. Giving a mask to people, especially those in crowded places like indoor markets or churches, will help in the prevention of the Covid-19 in Zambia
