Good Samaritan House

One of our team in Uganda, Margaret, ran an Aids orphanage in Kajwenge and identified a need to support these vulnerable children, teaching them tailoring and shoe-making skills and helping them make a living. Margaret is their counsel and guide.

They meet in a building built with money raised by Val Turner, one of our team in the UK, and her church in Gloucestershire. Four sewing machines are now being used for teaching, which will last six months. We have six girls learning tailoring, including Rose who is physically disabled and uses a hand machine for her work, and 13 youngsters training in shoe making. We are in the process of funding uniforms for the school, and each of the orphans are now being cared for in families, attending school, and are the responsibility of the community.
