Two of our Trustees, Bridget and Steve Withell, plus another supporter, Pete O’Keefe, are currently in Uganda meeting with the staff of UWCM and monitoring some of the projects we support. They have been greatly encouraged by the dedication and commitment of the staff and the progress and sustainability of many of the projects. They visited Simu Women’s Group who are still making the reusable sanitary pads and distributing them to school girls.
Pete led training sessions with UWCM and local business leaders to help them raise income locally to increase their self-sustainability. He also encouraged local business owners to work together in trust, honesty and transparency.
More news to follow when they return!
