Igniting the creative potential of Ugandan youth through arts and crafts
In an effort to impart practical skills in students going through Hope Academy, URF established the Creative Arts and Crafts Center which offers training in various crafts, painting, music, dance and drama.
Students make jewelry out beads made from recycled papers. Other products include sandals, greeting cards, African textile designs, etc.
This project equips students with life skills which can be a source of income and be able to sustain themselves now and in the future.
The sale of the crafts is part of a strategy for URF to become self-sustaining.
