Takawiri Initiative is a community based organization that produces handmade stationery and craft items using water hyacinth as the raw material.
We have also identified plant fibers like banana, papyrus, sea grass and corn stalk as alternative source of raw material used in the production of paper.
As a team, we are aiming at creating employment to the youths and also assist the fishing industry by gainfully using the water hyacinth.
We have a wide range of products including bookmarks, note books, gift bags, gift boxes, files, folders, paper lamp shades, greeting cards, name tags, business cards, envelopes, letterheads among others.
We have also registered Takawiri Craft Enterprises to be a marketing branch for the initiative.
