My story

[p]Millions of young people in Sub-Saharan Africa are out of work and when youngsters leave Primary, only a small percentage can afford senior school.[/p][p]For this reason, we opened self-funding Vocational Training Courses particularly for young girls. Our Tailoring/Knitting classes make school uniforms and Hairdressing Students work on local clients.[/p][p]Many potential students have asked for catering classes as everyone has to eat and it is relatively easy and cost effective to start up a small catering business. In rural areas a lot of homes do not even have a kitchen so many people eat out on a regular basis.[/p][p]We started to build a training kitchen/restaurant some time back, but recent funds coming into our charity have been used to maintain our existing school buildings, especially classrooms, latrines, & kitchen areas. These have repairs have been completed and now our Number One Focus is to get this restaurant OPEN. [/p][p]Internal work such as plastering the walls and ceilings, adding window frames, and finishing the floor are the next jobs we need to purchase building materials for. Once these are onsite, local builders and labourers can quickly resume work again.[/p][p]We really appreciate all donations, large or small, and if you are willing to do any extra fundraising yourself please do set up your own fundraising Virgin page or add a Donate button to your Facebook page. Thankyou so much - From Ann (and our Ugandan Director - Denis Aheirwe) [/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]

so many appeals for aid all over the world but yours is such a grass roots organisation I am sure every pound counts and is spent wisely. All good wishes in these unusual and difficult times.
