Metal Gate Installed at Second Road Entrance to Our Home Building Project

By Carol Davis | President

Gate and 2nd Road to Our Home Building Area
Gate and 2nd Road to Our Home Building Area

In early June 2022, we began finishing up project items that were incomplete when the Coronavirus shutdowns began in March 2020, One of those important items for our home building project related to the second access road to our project that was being finished in early 2020.  We're happy to report that we now have a very secure metal gate to secure the access to our property from this second road access point.

The gate was made and installed during June 2022 along with a small amount of fencing and posts as well as cemented metal poles that attach to the gate. We're very glad that this work was able to be completed so that our property remains secure as we finalize the remaining common area items.

As long as there are no more Covid-related shutdowns, we expect that home building could begin next year. As we mentioned in our last report, we will be traveling to Uganda next month to be on site and speak with the project architect, and other key people involved with this project so we can determine a realistic time frame for our project tasks. We also need to assess the effect of inflation on our expected project costs.

We'll report more in our next update after we return from Uganda!

In the meantime, we are continuing to purchase crafts from our women artisans to help them with improving their cash flow. We also continue to use some project monies to make additional business loans to the women artisans so that they have funds to strengthen their local businesses and help them recover from the difficulties of the lockdowns, restrictions and general lack of customers during these past two years.

Thanks for your patience and support as we determine a new timetable to forge ahead with this project now that things in Uganda are beginning to return to a new normal.
