The Leather Workshop and Carpentry

The Skills Centre - with Leather and Carpentry Workshops - was established in 1994 to train some of the HIV/AIDS orphans. These workshops trains youngsters who are not able to afford to go to school and makes them highly employable once they have qualified.  

The leather products are beautiful and practical and could sell well; but the local people don't have the money to pay the high prices these goods would easily attract in Kampala. Julius, the head of the Leather Workshop, wants to rent a stall in Kampala to sell their products to a wider market. Then the high quality of the leatherwork will ensure the initiative will become self-sustaining!
