The aim of this project is to provide livelihood skills to the children : soap making, candle making, bakery and vaseline making.
It is the purpose to implement this project between the month of June and the middle of December 2016 where all the projects would have started running smoothly.

Progress since last status report:

We received the needed funds to start the project and have been able to conduct several meetings with the stakeholders that are participating in the smooth running of this project.
We started the construction of the multipurpose shade; work took somewhat longer but has been accomplished. The service vehicle was purchased. We have sent a team of 3 members to check on the machines which were sold to the project. The supplier is waiting for the arrival of the candle making machine and then all can be transported in one go.
Activities to be accomplished in this quarter:

  • Construction of the ground and the shade - done
  • Painting of the room
  • Buying machines – done – waiting for delivery
  • Theory training by the trainers are ongoing

Financial status:

  • More work to construct the shade then expected
  • Electricity shutdown that delayed the work to construct the bakery metallic box
  • Poor network and problems with the laptop which caused a delay in reporting
