Shadowman Community

Aubin Rwankuba

Nakivale, Uganda

"Our vision and mission is to change that perception of refugee. We are people who use their body as a message to express and to heal."

Nakivale

Uganda

Over 100,000 people from a dozen countries live in the Nakivale Refugee Settlement, Uganda’s oldest camp for the dispossessed. Here you’ll find Shadowman partner Opportunigee helping to lift fellow exiles via practical training - in everything from farming to entrepreneurship - and cultural expression - such as Join the Moves dance class with Aubin.

Shadowman Community

Bottle Brick Building

Kyebando, Uganda

"The most important thing about this bottle project, why I love it so much, is it's helping families earn a little. We're helping clean up the environment."

Kyebando

Uganda

In one of the fiercest ghettos of Kampala, Uganda, Shadowman and the You&I Foundation are taking on poverty and pollution using culture, education, and a whole lot of “bottle bricks.”

Shadowman Community

Mosheda

Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh

"It's hard to make necklaces, but gradually I am feeling easy. And it's interesting work! When I completed my first necklace, I felt proud of myself. I like the design of my own style."

Cox's Bazar

Bangladesh

Shadowman is parked outside of the densely populated refugee camps within South Bangladesh, where the Mermake Creative Hub exists as a cultural-community center space serving both nationals and Rohingya populations. Mosheda and many others have taken their learned craft skills to start small businesses.
