95 Girls Learning the Skills to Help More Girls

Despite a one month due to the sickness of the instructor was hired for the program, the Pad Project has taken off successfully.  Currently, 95 girls in both Primary Five and Six  are now participating in the tailoring lessons every evening after normal class sessions.  In addition, every weekend, the tailoring lessons start very early in the morning but in shifts due to the limited sewing machines and small size of the room.

The pilot program currently has 5 sewing machines in place.  Our next step is to shift the program to a bigger classroom and install more sewing machines so that we can teach more girls each shift.  The larger classroom has been partially constructed, but still needs to be plastered and roofed.

Local women's groups approached the project leadership team with an overwhelming interest to participate with this Tailoring course in order to help their respective families using the new skills acquired, but at this time there is no capacity beyond the 95 girls currently enrolled.  It is part of the Project Plan to enroll local women in the program once there is sufficient capacity.

Another exciting development is that other schools in the surrounding area have also illustrated great interest in this project, both in receiving pad kits for their girls and in eventually starting similar programs.

The girls in the program, the staff at Future Victory School in Butansi Sub-county, Kamuli District, Eastern Uganda and the team at Humanity Healing International would like to share our sincere Gratitude with our generous friends through GlobalGiving for helping to sponsor this program and send our best wishes for a Joyous Holiday Season.
