I use the word “excited’ a lot in my posts here but if you are a regular here of have visited our project in Ruhanga, you will understand why.
The source of my excitement this time is progress that has been made at the Skills Centre. You will recall that back in July our friends at Hastoe Housing Association called in armed with buckets of paint.
Well after they left, our in house carpenter got to work, he put up a few shelves, made benches and tables. Two weeks ago, the centre opened for business so to say. The sewing machines that were in storage now have a new home and can be put to use. As I write, interviews are under way for teacher that will deliver the sewing classes.
Did I say I am excited about this?
The sewing room will also double as a clothing shop and as you can see it has already attracted its first customers
And with all the anticipated activity at the centre it has been necessary to build toilets for girls
All the work is undertaken by men from the village and this contributes to the local economy and availability of jbos in the village, Did I say I was excited? Job are hard to come by in this part of Uganda and therefore being able to contribute to job creation in the village is something to be excited about
And they do a fab job. I am always surprised at how fast they work too.
I can’t wait to see the end results. Thank you for your continued support. We really can’t do this without you.
