By Lillian Nalumansi PUPILS from Lincoln International School in Uganda yesterday donated a vocational sewing project to needy pupils of Mbuya Church of Uganda Primary School. Pupils from Lincoln school have since October 2001 been raising money for buying machinery for the Operation School Fees project whose aim is to equip girls whose parents are living with HIV/AIDS with practical skills for future self-employment. The sewing centre is equipped with four Singer sewing machines, learning aids and needle work sewing materials. Pupils will be trained in making garments, patterns, hand sewing, crocheting and various machine stitches. “We are here representing Lincoln International School of Uganda. Since we are an international school, we have many different cultures, each unique in its own way. The Uganda society and culture are no exception,” Daniel Davies, a pupil at Lincoln International School read in a speech at Mbuya Primary School. Susan Avery Keane, the Operation School Fees coordinator said Lincoln’s elementary pupils and middle class children held bake sales, sold Christmas trees, cards and gourds to raise funds for the centre. Father Joseph Archetti, the project director Reach Out Mbuya Parish HIV/AIDS Initiative, cut the tape to mark the opening of the centre. Ends
