While Uganda once had a thriving apparel manufacturing industry, over the past several years most of the factories have closed, leaving hundres of skilled seamstresses without work.  One Mango Tree, which began in northern Uganda working in former conflict areas in and around Gulu, has expanded to the capital city of Kampala, empoying a small group of talented seamstresses living in the city's slums.  The women in the Kampala apparel group are working to build an organic cotton apparel business based on fair trade principles that can sustain them long term.  The women in Gulu create beautiful bags and accessories from traditional African wax print patterns and hand loomed fabrics.  Many of the Gulu group not only care for their own families, but also for children orphaned during the war.
