Helping young Kenyans survive and thrive in Kisumu

Jan 7, 2012

Moving forwards, bringing in more trainees

Paluoc is a carpentry training workshop, built in 2010/11 with help from HANDS AROUND THE WORLD, which offers training to disadvantaged young people in Kisumu, Kenya. The youngsters include street children; many have been affected by HIV/AIDS.

The workshop started last year with 4 trainees and now that the consignment of recycled carpentry tools has arrived from “WorkAid”  the number can be expanded to 12 . The aim is to provide both a means of employment and a source of future income for trainees’ families.

We need help at this early stage to get the centre up and running effectively, hoping ultimately that it will be self sustaining.

Two supporters of HATW, Joan and Lyn are visiting Paluoc, at their own expense, in Feb/March 2012. They have interests in other projects in the area and will be able to give us valuable feedback and first-hand accounts of developments, and some photos.
