CRVO Uganda 2020
Follow-up october 2020





Working place and additional equipment for bakery and candle making                

Location:                      Kabale, Uganda

Project leadtime:         1 year

Requestor:                    Leonard Tumwesigye on behalf of Children Rescue Voluntary Organisation

Description of the project:

This project will be implemented in 2 phases.
First phase includes the construction of a multipurpose working place in line with national standards, to allow CRVO to continue its commercial activities in selling bakery products and candles.
Second phase is an extension of the machinery in the bakery and candle making.
Time wise the aim is to start the 1st phase immediately and the 2nd phase around year end 2020.


  • Construction of a multipurpose working place according the standards required by the UNBS (Uganda National Bureau Standards).
  • Extending the machinery in the bakery and candle making so more children can be involved and build necessary skills, to meet the market demand and to increase the income to cover increasing cost of living (school fees, …)
  • Purchase of a diesel generator to reduce high costs on electricity
  • Skills training for the beneficiaries


  • Children at CRVO with minimum age of 12
  • Single mothers and school drop outs


Phase 1: 23.600.000 Uganda Shillings (+/- 5.900 €)
Phase 2: 30.000.000 Uganda Shillings (+/- 7.500 €)


In case national standards of the UNBS are not met, the bakery and candle making has to be halted which would have a huge impact in financial means to support the children and families

Follow-up of the project

October 10th 2020
General status:

The project started with improving the temporary bakery structure which was not constructed according the standard of Uganda National Bureau of Standards. The construction started on August 10th with 20 workers and is finalized according the standard guidelines.

Progress since last status report:

The construction was improved and pumbling, plastering and painting works completed.
Financial status:

The provided funds were fully used for buying all needed materials (sand, cement, bricks,… and plumbing materials) and the execution of the construction works.


During the implementation of the project some challenges popped up:

  • Because of power shut downs, long distances had to be walked to fetch water
  • Materials to be purchased far away
  • Interruptions because of lots of rain

At completion of the project we realised that a lot of water comes from the roof, which needs to be trapped to avoid, damage and therefor would like to collect the water in a big tank so it can be used for domestic activities. The cost for the tank would be 3.000.000 Uganda Shillings.
