The former model stopped at the bridge to teach sewing and design to needy women in Kenya.
Since last year, the Maja Kotala sewing machine at the Common School is now ready to buy their own products online from the Salvation Army Kenya and 20 graduates.
“I ended up with a group of people who were ready to fly,” said Chorzo, 30. The next group has started and they have amazing power.
They want to change their lives, they want to help me by changing other people’s lives and I can’t be more grateful and grateful.
In the Bamburi district of Mombasa, free courses teach students not only how to dress but also how to start their own fashion line.
Lessons also include yoga and meditation in the curriculum.
Kotala came up with the idea of losing her modeling job in Paris and losing her father due to problems with Kovi.
After studying fashion design in Australia, Kotala decided that she wanted to use the skills she had learned to teach women in Africa.
“Uganda was my first trip and I have to admit that I don’t like it,” she said. When I returned home, it was very difficult. The cultural differences were so great, I didn’t know I wanted to continue.
My love for Africa returned and I decided to go to Nairobi to give it a second chance.
Following her father’s death, she found strength in helping women and promised to continue growing together.
Kotala said in a video on her YouTube channel: “I wanted to know why life was so hard for me, I lost my job, and now my life in Paris.
“Why are you doing this to me? I stayed in Poland for four days before returning to Mombasa because those women trusted me.
They wanted to change their lives, so I had to be the one to do it.
As well as educating women in the group about sewing and design for commercial use, the project is fighting menstrual poverty in their recyclable packaging.
Sewing Together websites say: “Due to lack of protection, young girls are often forced to use leaves, feathers or even sand during menstruation. Many young women also drop out of school.
“It creates gaps in education and often leads to expulsion. Sewing is a joint venture for Polish fashion houses, we make tiles from their area!
“All in a sustainable, zero-waste fashion.”
