2009 has got off to a great start for WOMA, because Karen was able to visit Kampala to meet our new recruits there, along with our dear friends from NGEN +, our Ugandan partners. We pay tribute to them once again for their hard work in identifying women in need, and ensuring that their training goes smoothly.
At the end of last year twelve women began their tailoring course at Namasuba college which is situated about four miles from the centre of Kampala . It’s a very unassuming “no frills” place, but what it offers is very impressive. The college has designed a course especially for WOMA, which gives the women the flexibility that they need to balance their family commitments with their training programme.
By Easter all 12 will have completed their training in basic tailoring skills and been given the tools required to set up their own businesses – meaning that nearly 40 women will have been trained by WOMA since we started our operations! It goes without saying that we couldn’t have done this without your support – thanks!
