Microenterprise

Soap and Candle Making

In Jan 2018 working with Mountains of Hope 15 people were trained in making antibacterial soap and mosquito repellent candles.  We’re currently working towards raising the funds to set up a co-operative so that these skills can be extended further and reach the community as a whole.

Jewellery and Tailoring

Training in jewellery making and tailoring began in September 2017 following the August team trip.  Currently 8 school leavers are developing their skills and starting to sell products locally.  We are looking forward to this becoming a self sustaining microenterprise project. Its vision to ‘Eradicate poverty among school leavers through skill empowerment.’
