KARIBU MKUTANO MKUU 2015
Here is a kanga that was made by NIDA Textiles for UMOJA AMCOS. I know very little about this organization, but it seems it is a lending organization that works in Liwale, Tanzania, which is in the south-east. From what I can read on the kanga- these kangas were given out at a big meeting held for people who had loans from the organization. In the center of the kanga the English translation is, “Congratulations on finishing your warehouse loan, Liwale Town” and the saying at the bottom in capital letters says, “Welcome to the Big Meeting of 2015.”
This kanga serves so many purposes – it is a gift, but also represents celebration and organization identity, while promoting the goal of UMOJA AMCOS and the accomplishments of the people with whom it works.
