Most of the children were visibly eager,utmost attentive and excited for learning how make simple bakery products which they had all along been consuming with little idea about how to make them.
Others,like Oliver Nakamya,were just impatient to start utilising the attained skills,vowing to pester her parents to give her simple startup capital and start making half cakes.
“This is something I can do and buy basic needs and lessen the burden that my parents go through,” Nakamya notes, lauding Kitovu Mobile for such noble initiatives
Kirumba sub county has six groups which are formed as per age groups. as spelt out in the Grand Mothers and OVC support concept. The group members go through a series of activities.
These are done in phases and Kirumba project is in phase two which is largely programmed for life skills training so as at the end of the three years—the period for which the projects lasts, the beneficiaries can easily survive.
Meanwhile, to ensure that the children engage in recreational activities like music, dance and drummer, the beneficiaries got drums and other local music instruments.
Happily,they (Children ) received their (instruments) and quickly drummed them as they danced Kiganda dance.
