The Butterfly Project in Uganda
This has been another relatively quiet year for Africa Equip.
We are still in touch with Ben Parkinson’s Social enterprise Butterfly project in Uganda and purchased a Bench Morticer woodworking machine for them.
The photo shows the assembled machine with the boys who use it to help in the manufacture of equipment for omweso, a popular game played locally. The omweso sets are sold to raise funds for the project.
The Christ Worshippers Choir Update
We are still supporting the Christ Worshippers Gospel Choir. They have been doing some recording and singing at concerts and in local hospitals. Zwakele is the lead female singer. We still plan to send the recording studio but first need to relocate the Choir to a more suitable and permanent home. To this end, we have been building our funds over the last 18 months.
We are encouraging the Choir to look for suitable land or a property that we could purchase so they can fulfil their vision of having a smallholding to produce crops, keep chickens, and rear pigs.
