Jewelry and textile items made by sudents to raise money for the UNIFAT Primary School scholarship fund.
Partnership with the Wawoto Kacel Cooperative Society
Founded in 1997, this cooperative in Gulu, Uganda supports individuals, mostly women, who are unable to work or are ostracized due to having HIV/AIDS or other chronic diseases, loss of families, and other issues that make them vulnerable https://www.facebook.com/wawotokacel/. At the co-op center they learn a wide array of traditional and contemporary craft skills.
Words Into Deeds, in partnership with Friends of UNIFAT, raised over $6,000 in private donations and obtained a $4,000 Rotary District International Grant to renovate and fully equip a vacant room to serve as a Computer Learning Center and hire an IT Education specialist. Working with a team of teachers, a grade-by-grade set of curricular goals has been established, and beginning in January, 2021, classes for teachers and students are being offered.
