The skillful tailors at SADICH's vocational training school have been busy, using these beautiful fabrics to make shirts, aprons and bags. Our trustees and volunteers who visited SADICH this week were so impressed that they are going to bring back as many items as their suitcases can carry for sale in the UK.
SADICH also coordinates a craft project, whereby parents whose children have disabilities make traditional Ugandan beaded necklaces and weave baskets to generate an income to pay for their children's school fees and medical care.
Volunteer Jessie Acton and her father, Trustee Chris Acton, are pictured below, looking rather dapper (we're sure you'll agree) sporting SADICH's accessories.
Please get in touch if you would like to purchase crafts and clothes. All proceeds go straight back to SADICH and the families who make these items to generate income for their children's well-being, as well as our tailoring students earning a living through their skills.

You shall speak to all the skillful persons whom I have endowed with the spirit of wisdom, that they make Aaron's garments to consecrate him, that he may minister as priest to Me.
All the skilled women spun with their hands, and brought what they had spun, in blue and purple and scarlet material and in fine linen. All the women whose heart stirred with a skill spun the goats' hair.
A time [...] to sew together.
Ecclesiastes 3: 7
(Note on the quotes: we are a Christian charity so it seemed apt to research Biblical quotes related to tailoring. SADICH's talented tailors, weavers and sewing experts are evidently part of a long tradition!)
