We funded this committed group who are providing informal vocational education on a shoestring to vulnerable youth in Mubunda.  Previously they had to rent most of their equipment.  Our grant allowed them to buy a bench saw and sander to train youth in furniture production, providing much needed youth employment.

In 2020 we made a further grant to allow the group to set up a revolving fund to buy wood to expand the business. Members use the wood to make items for sale, and repay if from their profits.
