Waterworks have been done and we’re waiting for the meter and the tap to be connected.

The supplier for machines have been identified and equipment has been ordered. In the meanwhile the dough mixer has been delivered and we’re waiting for the oven and the cutter. The oven will be tested first before payment.

The project is 90% completed, as only installation of the equipment is remaining before we can start baking.

Financial status:

The received funds, 24.050 €, are in use as planned.


Purchase of equipment needed to be done at a supplier outside Soroti city and delivery takes a lot of time.
