Training to lift young Ugandans out of poverty

Oct 26, 2010

Making Good Progress

The training of 25 young people in carpentry and also in tailoring is going well, and we are delighted to have received donations of three treadle sewing machines and two used laptops which are now starting out on their way to Uganda. The sewing machines will be used in the training, and the laptops in recording the students' data, fees as they are paid, and to help communication with us (hopefully via a dongle/modem) in the UK. At present the team can only contact us when they go about two hours on the bus to an internet cafe in either the town of Gulu or Masindi.

Sadly, the water situation continues to be a problem but we hope soon to receive some funds to get the borehole done. We have now found a local engineering company able to undertake the necessary geological survey and subsequent drilling. Please help if you can...

Many thanks for your interest!
