Ugandan singer Iryn Namubiru will Sunday June 26 auction off her own collection shoes as she raises funds for her NGO, Gather For Children.
“If you’ve ever liked my Parisian fashion, come ready to bid. Take home a pair of my shoes and put shoes on a child in Mityana,” Namubiru said. She wears size 39 ( size 8 or 9 American?).
Gather For Children is a Community Based Organization in Mityana, Namabale and Namukozi, which supports women to farm and feed their children by providing the land, equipment and other necessities.
The organization was started by Namubiru in 2006, using her own land, and is run in partnership with the Namukozi West women’s group.
“We are gathering for children at the Wine Garage in Muyenga from 9am to 1pm. I will be collecting children’s shoes, and auctioning off my own shoe collection to buy shoes for kids at my NGO,” said.
“Please bring any good quality used or new shoes for boys and girls aged 1 – 14 to support my efforts to support children less privileged,” she appealed.
