emerge poverty free supports war orphans boarding at the Almond College, a secondary school in the town of Lira. To build the skills of the community’s young adults, emerge poverty free also supports a vocational training college in Lira to provide quality skills training in trades such as bricklaying, engine mechanics, tailoring, and secretarial work.
In past years, we have funded many orphans and we provided grants for the improvement of dormitories and classrooms in the school, in addition to supplying school materials such as desks and textbooks.
This provides a life-changing opportunity to learn and grow in a safe and encouraging environment for the children who have suffered terrible trauma and loss. We continue to provide equipment for teaching metal and woodwork, plumbing and electronics along with general teaching aids. Donated items enrich students’ learning, while classes at the college give young people in northern Uganda a chance to learn new skills. Training local people to fill needs in the workforce will also boost the local economy.
Skills training for young people at Human Technical Development Training Centre.
Students at Almond College in Uganda were sponsored to complete their secondary education. Many of them will continue into vocational training.
