Jinja Women Learn English Skills to Help Their Businesses

Jinja Women Learn English to Help Their Businesses

In August and September, Carol Davis and one teacher volunteer spent six weeks in Uganda. Part of this time was spent with the women in Jinja where the home building project is located.  The Jinja women were very excited to have Trisha, the teacher volunteer, hold daily classes to help them with their English speaking skills as well as work on important math skills such as counting and adding.

The women who were interested in improving their English were divided into 3 groups of beginning, intermediate and advanced depending on their skill level.  Learning English is very important to help the women be successful in their small busineses. This is because they live in Jinja where very few people speak their native language from northern Uganda. 

So improving their English skills will help them improve their ability to talk to their customers as well as help make sure their suppliers do not cheat them when they make purchases.  The women know that they need to have successful businesses to help them be able to save money for their future homes and to afford the other costs associated with having a home. 

Currently, some of the funding for this project is being used to help provide help to some of the poorer women with health issues so they can stabilize their businesses and help recover from the difficulties they experienced when there were lockdowns in Uganda due to the coronavirus in 2020 and 2021.

We thank you for your support in making this project possible and with helping the women improve their businesses and household cash flow.  We hope to begin home building later in 2023.
