This chic handmade Unissograff umbrella supports the social rehabilitation of former child soldiers in Uganda.
With your purchase, you will be donating 20% of the net proceeds to NPO Terra Renaissance which works locally to help former child soldiers in Uganda. The picture is a high-definition "Unissograff Art" digital print, featuring a collage of 50 to 100 layers, a part of which uses the drawings made by children in Uganda.
Unissograff is art that would be incomplete without children.
Lightweight yet tough, this elegant umbrella will keep you dry in style. It was designed exclusively by Unissograff artist ca37, and is hand-made in London.
If you are heading out for the day, why not try to beat the weather with a matching Unissograff handbag or Unissograff crossbody bag, and perhaps a Unissograff scarf to lighten the mood.
Or perhaps you would like to order your very own unique Unissograff item?
To clean your umbrella, simply brush off hardened dirt, or shake it off when wet. As the canopy is made from water-repellent fabric, it is self-cleaning.
The non-aluminium sections of the umbrella are non-corrosive, so you don't have to worry about them rusting over time.
Among our activities, Unissograff™ generates funding to support the education and well-being of children in the minefield villages of Cambodia, and the social rehabilitation of young people who were engaged as child soldiers in the civil conflicts of Uganda.
Currently all donations generated by artwork created from children in Uganda are made to Ugandan branch of Terra Renaissance, an officially certified NPO organisation based in Kyoto which stations its people on the ground in the Kingdom of Cambodia and the Republic of Uganda to actively support the people of these aforementioned areas.
This way we know that our donations are 100% used for the purpose with which they were intended, supporting the areas they were intended for.
Certified NPO Terra Renaissance was established in October 2001 with the aim of "realizing a society (world peace) where all lives can exist in safety and peace".
In 2005, they dispatched expatriate staff and started a rehabilitation project for former child soldiers in northern Uganda. As of February 2017, they have facilitated the rehabilitation of 192 ex-child soldiers and provided livelihood support to about 1,000 ex-child soldiers' families. Additionally, in collaboration with the Uganda Small Weapons Action Network (UANSA) they also conduct activities to educate the general public about the issue of illegal small arms.
