On 24th May 2018, 5 ladies graduated from the Family And Community Engagement – FACE Tailoring Programme; We were privileged to host Joyce Ssebugwawo, Rubaga Division mayor; who was the Guest of Honor. She officially handed over certificates and gifts to the graduates.

The Mayor encouraged the graduates and the other caregivers; to be hardworking; and to always pray to God to intervene in their lives especially for their loved ones in prison.

One of the ladies said that she never hoped she would graduate, because in her family she was the only one who never attained any kind of formal training and never had a job, but the tailoring course and experience has made her realize that she’s worthy and she feels confident she will succeed. Hadijja, one of the ladies said she’s starting her own tailoring school at her home, and she already has 8 students. We thank Ben Raikes, everyone he works with and all our UK friends for making this possible. We thank Mama Teresa Kemp for her contribution towards the sewing machines that were given to the ladies as well as their business cards; each of the ladies has business cards.
