Greetings from Gulu

Our new Ribe trainee!
Our new Ribe trainee!

Greetings Ribe Support Team!

     Exciting news from our Ribe Project training program. We have a new trainee! Meet Florence. Florence is a single mother of four children and she also cares for an additional dependent. Before coming to our program, she was doing any small, temporary jobs she could find, in order to take care of her family. She is very happy to now be receiving vocational training that will provide her with new skills, expanding her job possibilities. As with our other, previous beneficiaries, she will receive a monthly stipend during her training period. Her goal is to save her earnings so she can soon start a small business of her own. Welcome, Florence!

     A quick update on everything else happening with The Ribe Project. In our last note, you met the first three graduates from our program, Concy, Adreen, and Lily. These lovely ladies continue to thrive in our Ribe family. As graduates, all three have chosen to stay on with us, being employed at a fair wage to continue to create beautiful bead jewelry, using the skills they learned in our program. We are so lucky to have them as alumnae and also as new employees!

      So far, two shipments of gorgeous bracelets and necklaces have been sent to the U.S. and are currently proudly displayed on our website (view them here https://www.ribeproject.org). The sales from these beautiful creations, in addition to your generous donations, allow us to continue to provide opportunities for women in need of assistance. As you might imagine, Covid has had a huge impact on charitable giving. This reduction in funds has affected the scope of what we are currently able to provide in the Gulu area. We hope this is only a temporary hurdle, and also pray that the sales from our jewelry collection will increase, providing the additional income we need to continue our mission. In the meantime, we continue to enjoy our Ribe family here in Gulu.

Wishing you all the best,

    Brett Krieble

     President/CEO of The Ribe Project
