This training is for the owners of small businesses on the refugee camps who need our help. PDH recruits experienced business people from the UK to travel over to Uganda to deliver 4 day training workshops for small businesses and to set up a Microfinance Savings Groups. In July 2019 we took a team to Morobi Refugee Camp where 80 delegates from the local business community attended every day. Businesses of all types were represented from shops selling general household goods to welders, builders, caterers, mobile phone chargers and nut oil producers to name a few! One excellent outcome of the week was that 3 Microfinance Savings Groups were formed with a total of 84 members.
The diocese has employed a facilitator named Lokose, to oversee these groups and to set up new groups across the camps. The role of the groups is to provide a safe place in which to save and invest money, as well as to be able to offer low interest loans and to provide funding of projects in support of the local community. Projects Delivering Hope has committed to fund Lokose’s employment for 2 years and has just provided a motorcycle to enable him to reach the groups some of which are in remote locations. Please help us to raise the money needed for a business workshop near Adjumani and an advanced workshop near Moyo in October 2020
