Jewelry and textile items made by sudents to raise money for the UNIFAT Primary School scholarship fund.
Partnership with the Wawoto Kacel Cooperative Society
Wawoto Kacel means “Walking Together.” 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. At the co-op center they learn a wide array of traditional and contemporary craft skills.
Together with Words Into Deeds and our other partners in Gulu, they are expanding their operations and training programs. This will enable young women to acquire both technical and business skills and thereby have opportunities to become self-sufficient.
