Auro Technical School | Pajwenda, Tororo, Uganda
In November 2019, four members of the Project CARE committee spent time volunteering at The Auro Technical School, a vocational college located in Pajwenda, a rural part of eastern Uganda, near Tororo town. The school provides students with an opportunity to access vocational training, and currently provides courses to over 140 students in hairdressing, tailoring, bricklaying and carpentry.
There are currently no trips planned to this school, however Project CARE is exploring the possibility of introducing an annual trip in the future.
Following the visit, the Project CARE team has decided to raise funds to reconstruct the school‘s kitchen and toilets, costing approximately £11,000 and £9,000 respectively. At present, the school’s toilet and kitchen facilities are extremely poor and requires urgent renovation. Not only will this help prevent the spread of diseases and provide vital facilities to the students, it will also enable the school to be registered with the local district (which is not possible without meeting certain minimum requirements, which the reconstruction work will allow the school to meet).
“We strongly believe that sanitation and food hygiene is a basic human right and that by constructing satisfactory toilet and kitchen facilities, we will transform the school.”
