Our Life Skills Center is open and has been been empowering the women of the Kamwengye District in Uganda with new life skills!
For one of our programs at the Life Skills Center, we minister to women ages 15-35. This group is the most likely to be victims of domestic abuse, forced marriages, and poverty. The goal of the Life Skills Center is to restore hope in these women by equipping them with a new life skill: tailoring!
Learning how to design and sew clothing is a practical way to combat poverty. It equips women with a way to provide for their families and for themselves.
Our lead trainer used to be an orphan herself and she teaches women how to sew a variety of useful things. In addition to clothing, they learn to sew head scarves, reusable sanitary pads, school uniforms, and quilt bed covers.
We’re not done yet!
Just life with the Mary Queen of Peace School, we need to expand our facility in order to accommodate the amount of women we minister to. This includes buying four more sewing machines. We also need continued financial support to run the Life Skills Center in order to obtain the fabric and other materials the women use.
We still have much to do for the Kamwengye District in Uganda, but we can get there with your help! Please consider sending us a donation via our American sister charity, Foundations of Jesus The Divine Mercy.
