The Kanga Project is a non-profit initiative celebrating the women of the rural tribes of Zanzibar by gifting them Kanga. Kanga is a rectangular piece of fabric that is commonly used by women in East Africa as a covering. The durability of the fabric has meant that it can be used to serve other purposes, such as for carrying children and heavy loads. As such, making it the perfect gift for women in these villages.
The project was founded in 2016 by photographer Muna Ally. It has already reached 1500 women in 10 villages. You can donate to the project over on The Kanga Project website.
