95 Girls Learning the Skills to Help More Girls

Despite a one month due to the sickness of the instructor was hired for the program, the Pad Project has taken off successfully.  Currently, 95 girls in both Primary Five and Six  are now participating in the tailoring lessons every evening after normal class sessions.  In addition, every weekend, the tailoring lessons start very early in the morning but in shifts due to the limited sewing machines and small size of the room.

The pilot program currently has 5 sewing machines in place.  Our next step is to shift the program to a bigger classroom and install more sewing machines so that we can teach more girls each shift.  The larger classroom has been partially constructed, but still needs to be plastered and roofed.

Local women's groups approached the project leadership team with an overwhelming interest to participate with this Tailoring course in order to help their respective families using the new skills acquired, but at this time there is no capacity beyond the 95 girls currently enrolled.  It is part of the Project Plan to enroll local women in the program once there is sufficient capacity.

Another exciting development is that other schools in the surrounding area have also illustrated great interest in this project, both in receiving pad kits for their girls and in eventually starting similar programs.

The girls in the program, the staff at Future Victory School in Butansi Sub-county, Kamuli District, Eastern Uganda and the team at Humanity Healing International would like to share our sincere Gratitude with our generous friends through GlobalGiving for helping to sponsor this program and send our best wishes for a Joyous Holiday Season.

67 Families Gifted with Cassava Cuttings

The Vocational Training Project at Future Victory School, the school Humanity Healing International supports in Uganda, continues to grow.  This season, the special high-yield, extra-hardy hybrid cassava we introduced to the region has continued to produce extremely well.  There was enough yield to share cuttings for 67 new families in the area.

One of the hallmarks of Humanity Healing projects is the element of community service.  We believe that the best way to reweave individuals back into the fabric of society is through the teaching of selfless service at the community level.  This is particularily true of orphaned children.  It is through the helping of others that instills the sense of a valued place in the community that is so important to children growing into well-balanced adults that will, in turn, help others in need.

As an aside, the number of children at Future Victory School has grown from 458 to 620.  Our deep Gratitude to you and GlobalGiving for helping to make this growth possible.

The Animal Husbandry program has also seen some growth. Nine goats were sold off to buy another cow, leaving 21 goats. With the birth of a calf, we are now up to 6 cows and self-sufficient for the milk supply for the current immediate needs for the school.  This has freed up funds for other much-needed supplies.

We are waiting for new pictures and will post them as soon as they are available.

With Deep Gratitude,

ing Machines Arrive At Vocational Training Center

Our first shipment of sewing machines for the Pads for Schoolgirls Project has arrived at the Vocational Training Center at Future Victory School in Uganda.  As you can see in the pictures, the students are very excited.

In case you are wondering why these are the old style treadle type sewing machines, the answer is simple: there is no electricity at Future Victory School.  In Uganda, electricity is primarily found in the major cities and corridors, with much of the countryside doing without.

We are in process of plastering the floor of the room where we will teach the sewing classes.  We have found a seamstress instructor and she is just waiting on the floor being finished before we start the classes.

Our sincere Gratitude to all those that generously donated to Humanity Healing International to make this first shipment of sewing machines possible.  We have also received shipments of pad kits from individuals with sewing skills of their own that wanted to give of their hands as well as their hearts.  Thank you.

It continuously amazes me that something that is so taken for granted in developed countries can make such a huge impact on the life a young woman in developing countries.  In sub-Saharan Africa, lack of access to feminine hygiene products is the #1 reason that girls have to drop out of school.  Studies have shown that each additional year of schooling, a girl’s earning potential increases by 10-20%.

Empowering woman empowers communities.  The goal is to keep girls in school.  Our contribution to this goal is the Pads for Schoolgirls Project.  Thank you for being a part of this change.
