Tomorrow is #GivingTuesday, a global day of generosity, being held this year on 30 November 2021.
Ahead of tomorrow’s #GivingTuesday event, Accomplish has unveiled our Christmas Campaign, supporting disabled entrepreneurs in Uganda.
Will you join this year’s #GivingTuesday by helping a young person start work as a tailor or hairdresser?
We would like to give sewing machines and hairdressing equipment to 17 tailors and 12 hairdressers who are about to graduate from the Rwenzori Special Needs Foundation's (RSNF) vocational training school in Fort Portal, Uganda.
RSNF, which teaches small-scale business enterprise management skills as part of its vocational courses, has found that its students have much better chances of starting work and running successful businesses if they are given professional equipment.
A sewing machine costs £83 and hairdressing equipment costs £48. Each student contributes 10% towards the cost, which makes the items affordable, whilst giving the students a sense of ownership. The students' contribution pays for transporting the equipment.
