    June 2014 Update
    By - Hugo Mason - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD Project Co-ordinator
    I left Siriba at the end of February and when I returned, David Steiner asked me to become project co-ordinator. This was an exciting step for me since having been to Siriba on three occasions, many of the local people had become good friends. Their world is so different to mine and with many things buzzing around in my...

    Siriba Vocational Training Centre is now at a crucial crossroads in its development, with a number of key areas to be addressed fully in the coming months. After 2 years in post, Mike Williams our project co-ordinator has decided to retire from the role – his personality, energy and enthusiasm will be missed. He has...

    September 2013 Update
    By - Rev Mike Williams - HATW Project Co-ordinator
    The work at Siriba has had its highs and lows this academic  year. The principal reports that a good number of students were enrolled at the beginning of the year, some 80 in number, but that this has halved during the course of the year primarily because students could not afford the fees.  The fees are really...

    Reports from Siriba indicate that the new academic year which started in January has begun well.  An encouraging number of students have been enrolled in four practical disciplines: Carpentry, Tailoring, Building and Bricklaying, and Motor vehicle repair and driving.  The latter two courses seem to be the most...

    January 2013 Update
    By - Rev Mike Williams - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD Project Co-ordinator
    The work of the Siriba Vocational Training Project is continuing to provide training for young people in a variety of practical disciplines.  But it has so far proved difficult to get the project fully recognised with the local education authority which means that no funding has been forthcoming from the...

    The work at Siriba Vocational Training Centre continues.  The new term, after the summer break, began in early September.  At first students seemed slow to come back after the holidays but now teaching and learning at the VTC are up and running.  As the principal of the VTC, I am spending some time in...

    Training, tools, water and inflation
    By - Rev Mike Williams - HATW Project link volunteer
    The news from Siriba is quite mixed.  The new Head of the Vocational Training Centre is making good progress in the day to day training in carpentry and tailoring training with young people.  But the longer term sustainability of the project will only be secured if the support of the regional government in this...

    Making progress
    By - Rev Mike Williams - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD PROJECT link volunteer
    The Vocational Training Centre at Siriba, Uganda, seems to be making steady progress.  Uganda itself is  going through a difficult time with inflation running up to 20%.  This is an overall figure and some basic prices, food for example, are seeing much bigger rises.  This makes life in rural Uganda...

Although the funds have not reached us yet, we know there will be sufficient to allow a geological survey to go ahead, preparatory to drilling a borehole. Depending on the...

    Visiting Siriba Vocational Training Centre
    By - Mike Williams - HATW Link Volunteer
    I arrived at Siriba at the end of April 2010 and was very warmly welcomed. Everyone was very friendly and extremely helpful, so my thanks go to Althurs and to everyone else at the school. I was also given a warm welcome in the congregation that meets at the school on Sundays and at the parish church at Bweyale. I was also...
