Women in Wellies
This project is now completed! Thank you for your interest! Please check out our Newsflash page to see pictures and updates.
Join our campaign to purchase 300 pairs of wellies for South Sudanese women working on a refugee camp in Uganda to grow vegetables for their families. At just £5 per pair, the need is urgent as they currently tend their fields wearing flip-flops! The two hour walk each way along with the heat, ants, scorpions and brambles leave their feet very vulnerable and they suffer terribly as they work in the fields for several hours each day. The crops they produce feed 2,500 people in the refugee camps and any surplus is sold to enable them to buy seed for next year’s crop. Please use the donate button below to give via our secure online giving portal give.net and make a real difference to these hard-working women. Use ref. 2018/001. Thank you!
4 day Business Training Workshop June / July 2019
(Click here to donate) Ref. 2019/001
Following a successful pilot seminar in July 2018 run by PDH Trustee Adrian Burholt, PDH is planning a 4 day event in June and July 2019. Business people from the UK will be invited to join the trustees on a trip to Morobi refugee camp in Uganda to provide training in business skills for young entrepreneurs. Some of these will have already set up a small business on the refugee camp, others will be aspiring to do so, and our aim is to give them the necessary training, support and encouragement together with a small microfinance loan to get them started.
PDH believes that the best way to help those in need is to give them the tools they need to help themselves. Small businesses thrive on the refugee camps and as well as providing a service to the community, they also provide employment and self esteem.
If you have business skills that you would like to pass on and you would be willing to join the Trustees in delivering the training on site in Morobi, or if you would like full details please click PDH Uganda Business Seminar 2019 for more information.
If you can’t join us, but would still like to contribute to the seed funding to help get a small business off the ground, please donate via our secure online platform by using the donate button below using Ref 2019/001.
Repairs to Kajo Keji Christian College
(Click here to donate) Ref. 2018/002
In January 2017 fighting reached Kajo Keji, and the people were forced to run for their lives leaving everything behind them. This also meant that the Christian College had to be abandoned with the loss of buildings, furniture and equipment.
The college went into refugee status and found a temporary home in a former orphanage building in Moyo, Uganda where it currently shares a campus with the Diocesan Office. The Principal, Rev James Lue reports that there are increasing numbers of students for the three departments at Kajo-Keji Christian College i.e Theology, Education and Business Administration. They currently have total of 82 students studying in the College, 40 students studying theology, 31 studying education, and 11 studying business administration.
With a peace agreement now signed between the warring factions, there is now huge optimism that the college will be able to return to its own buildings in Kajo-Keji in the summer of 2019. However, there is much damage to repair as the buildings have been looted and stripped of wiring and pipework. There is also damage to the doors and windows all of which will need to be repaired before it can be equipped for training once again. Projects Delivering Hope is aiming to raise £80,000 to allow the work to proceed.
