How years and numbers fly, we never imagined reaching this higher, we have close to 250 LGBTIQ+ people demanding for the cake baking skills training.

We re-partnered with kiddawalime bakery, a renowned company bakery here in western Uganda to host our intern members who have been equipped with adequate practical cake baking skills and bakery management.
During our trainings both in Mbarara and Ibanda MRF’s director of programs Miss Janet mutesi welcomed participants and briefed them on project concept and description of the cake baking project and the need to achieve the Five projects’ objectives like we have done in the past years. during our economic empowerment skills trainings, beneficiaries acquired knowledge and skills in cake baking and bakery management, improved household income, long term baking skills, foster self- reliance and have increased job creation.
Currently Maria and Mugisha our volunteers are supervising beneficiaries to enable them use the time allocated to benefit from the internships and offer capacity support visits to each beneficiary
