Uganda's Hot Pink Catwalk has models and designers with disabilities involved at every level. The goal is to change the perception of people with disabilities in Uganda. Shoe designer Cissy Nagawa makes pieces for the show.
Michelle Omamteker founded Malengo in 2015 to reduce the stigma regarding disabilities and promote inclusion in Africa. The Hot Pink Catwalk has become one of the biggest social events in Kampala.
Twenty-two of the models at the Hot Pink Catwalk have disabilities. Innocent Bobosini is a deaf ambassador for the Malengo Foundation and models in the show. Jane Arinaitwe wants to break the stereotype that disabled people are helpless.
Models and designers prepare for the fashion show in Kampala. Omamteker is pleased with the number of young disabled and non-disabled Ugandans who attend the show. She has released a series of children's books about disability inclusion.
