Number of students : 12
The Mothers’ Union is a world wide organisation of church married Christian women who share common goals
When we visited our projects in Uganda in March 2009, The Mother’s Union, from Bupadhengo Nursery School, organised by Mrs Robinah Lwevola, requested £400 to purchase 3 sewing machines and the necessary tailoring equipment (eg: pins, thread, chalk etc). They said that these sewing machines would be used during the afternoon and holidays, once the nursery children have gone home, to teach the girls who have dropped out of education, due to lack of funds or through being pregnant.
A skill, such as this, is part of our overall education plan, to encourage skills in order to alleviate poverty.
