Project Description: 

In an effort to uplift our selves out of the vicious circle of poverty, we felt the need to start up a tailoring project which will help to raise income to sustain our lives as women teachers since we teach at this school which has a large Number of orphans and this renders us to low pay hence failing to meet our house hold needs.

Describe Local Competition (if any) :  

There is little competition

  1. Training women and the parents especially the widows of Katumba Parents Humanist School and local community members to acquire the Tailoring skills for Sustainable livelihoods.

  2. To minimize and reduce expenditures incurred in travel to a distant places for tailoring experts.

  3. It will create motivation in the School neighboring Community for extending tailoring services near to them.


Cost of Items Needed for Project

4 Sewing Machines 350,000 x 4 = 1,400,000 UGX

Transport 100,000 UGX

Inputs 100,000 UGX

Technical Support 200,000 UGX

Total: 1,800,000 UGX  = 500 USD


(How much profit is estimated? What do you base those numbers on?)

By Working on torn Clohtes , a fee is normally paid for the service. There are Neighbouring Schools which will utilize the tailoring services for their School uniforms at a cost.
