Vocational School

Edirisa UK have recently donated a sewing machine and knitting machine to a vocational school in Ngoma in Kabale District. The school was started by Richard Mugayehwenki who founded the Special Needs Education Centre in Kitanga that Edirisa UK supports.

Pupils at the school are taught various vocational skills including brickmaking, agriculture and car mechanics.

With the new sewing and knitting machine they can now add tailoring to the curriculum and hopefully as the pupils skills improve we will be able to include the products they make in our craft shop.

Keep up the good work Richard!
