Home > Art > Wayawaya

This is a slow fashion movement with a mission of creating a meaningful industry for all the people involved. This is done by providing vocational training and viable job opportunities. Wayawaya in local language means “the art of wasting time”. This movement has been created to help women and girls living in poverty and also those who are unemployed to help them with the skills that can help them find a good living through the skills they acquire.

This movement has been in existence since 2013, the name Wayawaya came about because people used to laugh at these women saying they were just waisting there time (Wayawaya) but that didn’t stop the ladies.

During the Luvingstone tour, we visited the wayawaya shop at Jollyboys and we were able tosee the products that these wayawaya women make. They have beautiful handbags which are hand made by the Zambian women for women in Zambia. There products are sold locally and internationally, so let us support these women by buying there products who are helping themselves by coming up with this initiative which is a good thing because this simply means that they are creating employment for themselves and this will reduce levels of poverty in our country and also reduce the levels of enemployment. So when you are in Livingstone, find time to visit these wayawaya women and support them by buying one of there products.
