Emily's Spotlight

“My focus throughout the trip has been with Nile Vocational Institute (NVI).  Before leaving to come to Uganda, the company I work for (RSK), showed a phenomenal amount of support and encouragement for the projects Ugandaid are doing.

This has lead to organizing a meeting with RSK’s East African projects team and NVI to discuss ways to fill any gaps in the current curriculum so NVI can meet the standards required for students to go directly into industry, as well as possible appointments for industrial placements and hopefully create lasting connections.

Alongside this, the money raised by RSK has been enough to sponsor a student through a two-year training course at NVI.  The student is Amos Ssewonkambo, who is just starting on the welding and sheet metal work course.  It was such a joy meeting him on Sunday, hearing about his life and heart warming to see how happy and gracious he is about having the opportunity to study and to achieve his dream to work and see distant countries through this.”
