Would you be willing to give a donation of just 50p for each of the next 10 cups of coffee or snacks you buy on the high street? Could you get your friends involved as well? This would help us to have an early completion date for the training restaurant we are building in Ruhanga and start teaching student in the very near future. The foundation,walls and roof is on but money is still needed for doors & windows, internal ceiling, plastering, plumbing & electrics plus decorating and then all the necessary equipment. Joining in with our ‘Drink a Coffee for Africa’ challenge will make a huge difference to these disadvantaged youngsters

Event details

Build a Vocational Training Restaurant in Ruhanga

Thanks to donations already received we have partly built a Training Restaurant in Ruhanga, to provide many exciting tuition opportunities for young people in the local area. Due to a massive shortage of jobs in Uganda, most of our school leavers need to learn a practical skill that will enable them to start up a small business to support themselves and their future families. Catering Skills are always in demand and as our project is directly on a main highway it is ideally situated to attract passing motorists as paying customers.This income will allow us to keep the training fees to an affordable level. Once completed the facility will be run by our Ugandan partner NGO called 'Stand On Your Own' and be open to all young people in the district,
