Challenge:

Khanga Design Challenge

Brief

Khanga Competition is a competition for the fashion designers with creative ideas, who combine data and fashion to produce wearable Khanga designs with the content stories and messaging inspired from the data findings on the sexual and reproductive health and gender based violence in Temeke Districts. The competition supports and gives the fashion designers a platform to acquire knowledge, skills and improve data-use experiences, and finally use their talents to design Khanga with messaging that have the potential to raise the awareness, and call to action amongst community members and stakeholders on the problems around sexual reproductive health and gender based violence in Temeke. The team behind Khanga Competition believes that in order to pursue big ideas, and sharing better results, fashion designers need to be exposed to data use skills and knowledge to understand the health issues and problems so that to inform and inspire them on the designing of the khanga ideas and their messaging. We believe a well-designed Khanga mixed up with Data and creativity will result into not only raising awareness on sexual reproductive health matters and gender based violence, but also inspire conversation through the messaging around the khanga ideas. Fashion can always go beyond beautiful designs and ideas, and that is why we are bringing this challenge to you. Get involved by applying and use your talent and the opportunity to drive change and influence positive changes in the community.

Kanga Challenge

Why it should Matter to Apply

Temeke is one among the Districts highly affected by Sexual Reproductive Health and gender based violence challenges in Tanzania, and one of the contributing factor is on the low awareness among community members on the good practices to ensure their well-being, therefore, Khanga Competition sets to challenge the norms where fashion is only used to entertain and leisure, but use its creativity and beauty to champion for change, specifically, inspire the improvement on community health, gender and livelihood for the Khanga designers. Are you a fashion designer? Do you believe your idea; creativity and/or research can make a difference in the lives of the people in your community? Apply now and stand a chance to bring your project, idea, and design to life.
