Kitale School Uganda

 

Our aim is to enrich the lives of the children and the community of Kitale through education and independence

Every penny donated reaches the children it is intended for. 

 

 

Sewing Machine Appeal

 

At Kitale School we educate and give heath care to around 350 orphan children but no matter how well we educate them little difference will be made to the lives of many of these children unless we can provide them with jobs

A sewing machine gives a chance to make a living and could provide employment for many.

 We intend to set up a workshop with sewing machines to produce a variety of much needed products

including 

Washable sanitary towels ,  Knickers,  skirts,   T shirts,    tops, blouses,   shorts and boys underwear plus many other items.

This will help provide provide work for many and could be rolled out to other schools if we can make it successful

   

      FOR THIS WE NEED YOUR HELP

   A good strong sewing machine that will last for many years costs around £100 please help us to set up this workshop ( we already have the building) by donating towards this scheme

                About our school 

 

In  the  the village of Kitale B around 100kms from Kampala. Little or no aid had ever reached the village - they had no water, school, clinic, electricity or any of the things we take for granted in everyday life.

 


Look at the difference we have made

In 2005 there was nothing except despair in the village, disease and poverty was everywhere, children and adults alike felt they were the forgotten people.

Within 3 months with all the villagers helping we had the first 3 classrooms built and our first 75 pupils all orphans started at the school

Now in 2015 we educate and feed around 350 orphan children and give them health care.

  

Plus Sustainability

Now through many different schemes such as the village savings and loan scheme and the women's empowerment initiative we have brought some employment to the village with new projects such as the bakery project when previously they had never seen an oven, the craft project showing them brand new skills and the pineapple and upland rice projects.We plan to introduce pineapple wine making, pig and chicken projects and many more . these will be partially self funded through their own savings and loan scheme and helped with 'Seed Money' from you our donors.

The idea is that through education and training plus a little help from us we will turn this community from destitute to self sufficient and to also make them able to support there own school we plan that with even reasonable luck this should be at least partially achieved in the next few years.  

In the meantime all the help and support we can get is needed to help achieve this end and prove there is a better way of giving aid so whether you donate, volunteer here or in Uganda or just share our message with others on behalf of the children and villagers of Kitale we thank you from the bottom of our hearts 

 

                  Breaking news Feb 2015                           We expect that Kitale will be 50% self funded within just         12 months now if you continue to support us

          THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT
