PROJECT 52: MATERIALS TO HELP KAMPALA YOUTH TAKE UP TODAY'S REQUIREMENTS

The Sharing Youth Center was founded in 1975 by the Missionaries of Africa to meet the needs of young idle slum dwellers in Kampala. It is now the largest Youth Center in Uganda.

The Missionaries of Africa's preferential option for the poor has led them to become more engaged in supporting youth and promoting their integration into the labor market. Every year, the Center trains more than 125 students in the following fields: cooking, sewing, carpentry, hairdressing, metal processing ...

The Center also has a large library and adult remedial classes. Each year, more than 210 young people are introduced to computer skills. Every day, many young people meet for sports activities such as soccer, baseball, karate, dance, etc. Catechetical formation is offered for the preparation for the sacraments.

A difficulty
Young people who want to find a job need to be trained. The problem facing the Center is the lack of adequate equipment for the training of young people. They are obsolete. Example: The sewing department is one of the most important of the Center. He trains more than 30 young people each year. However, we lack sewing machines. Currently we use 16 sewing machines, 26 years old.

Need equipment to reach our goals

  1. Tools for making metal objects: 
    - Welding machine (welding machine)

  2. Tools for the sewing department:
    - Sewing machines (30); Knitting machine (1); Fixed tables for sewing machines (30)

  3. Tools for the carpentry department
    - Circular saw (1); Band saw (1)

Request
To reach our goals immediately, we would need a sum of about $ 20,000.00 Canadian dollars.

We thank you in advance for everything you do to support our youth as they prepare to face the challenges they face.
