About Kippot for Mitzvot 

Kippot for Mitzvot is a project to support women and clean water in Uganda. Each kippah brings safe water to one person for one year in Uganda via Drink Local Drink Tap water, hygiene and sanitation projects. Custom kippot can be bulk ordered for weddings, bar mitzvahs, bat mitzvahs and schools. Kippot for Mitzvot make your special day memorable while repairing the world! 

The women who lead this project also lead their homes and need income for their families. These kippot making gurus set their own fees and that fee goes direct to them. All of the net funds raised support Drink Local Drink Tap's clean water projects in rural Uganda.  Thank you for choosing to repair the world with us. There is no reason families should be living in both water and financial poverty.

Our History

My name is Erin Huber Rosen and I am the executive director and founder of Drink Local Drink Tap, the benefiting non-profit from the Kippot for Mitzvot project. Working in Uganda building safe water and sanitation projects led me to meet the Abayudyan (Jewish) community in 2015. Along the way, I realized that muslim, catholic, christian and jewish women were using their knitting skills to make kippot. I ordered some for my wedding in the colors I wanted. I was so happy, I wanted to do more with these amazing women. 

A conversation with our friend Moshe in July 2017 led to the idea of providing bulk kippot ordering opportunities to support these women and clean water.  Moshe and I are volunteering our time to empower these women and bring clean water (LIFE!) to people in Mbale, Uganda.
