1. Education and training for children with special needs
We have now linked up with Jane at Utange Primary school, to build an entirely new special unit in the school grounds to educate the children and teach them a range of trades such as cooking, tailoring, beadwork, carpentry and welding. The new unit will further benefit the children by integrating them to mix with the other pupils and, hopefully, it will also break down the stigma of disability and give them back their self-respect.
This is an exciting project but one which needs £120,000 to see it come to fruition!
2. Mothers who haven’t the funds to feed their children or have them educated.
Money has now been sent out to purchase knitting and embroidery machines. The first machine has been purchased and a person skilled in the work brought in to set yet another group of ladies on the path to self-sufficiency.
