Parents Concern
KAMWENGE ORPHANS VOCATIONAL CENTRE

Education is expensive in Uganda. Even in the Primary school where education is officially free it has many invisible costs like purchase of uniform, books, pens/pencils and other scholastic needs. Many orphans both supported by the project and those who are not may not afford to pay fees to college and University level. Many drop out of school due to lack of school requirements while others do not go to school at all.

Parents Concern with support from the French Embassy in Uganda has constructed a Vocational school to provide tailoring skills to 100 children every year. Relevant skills can lead to employment, income generation, empowerment and self esteem.

The tailoring project makes designed garments which we sell for income. We sell them and some necklaces made by widows both in Uganda and in other countries. USA gives us the biggest foreign market for our items. We are grateful to our partners.

More skills are needed for providing for more young people' varied interests and ability. There is need to put up a Computer training Lab, a carpentry workshop, building and construction, knitting, beauty saloon, nutrition/ bakery, agriculture science, tie and dye making, cookery, nursery teaching and other skills. We shall also need a dormitory for girls who come from very far as they are vulnerable as they go back home in evenings. Future plans include constructing of a Youth multi-purpose hall for meetings, seminars, conferences, counseling, health services and recreation. The center will provide youth friendly services.
