Paul Ochieng, the teacher at Paluoc, is aiming to produce furniture of an above average quality. To this end they have recently finished leveling the floor of the workshop; so that a table or chair with 4 legs carefully and accurately cut to the correct length, will stand firmly on the ground. This way the trainees will learn to produce the quality of work that will ensure their future employability.

They have also recently fitted windows. They, like many other parts of the world this year, have been experiencing  heavier rainfall than usual.  This needs to be kept out of the workshop.

These are still early days, but Paul wants to start the way he wants to carry on; setting the trainees good standards and getting them into good habits.

 
The photos show some of the trainees learning to plane and to use a chisel. There is also a photo of a trainee's toolbox, and a training session with Paul and some of the trainees.

Hopefully the number of trainees will increase next year but this will mean that the need for training materials will also increase so any help with funding would be much appreciated.
