RuFI Uganda officially launched the construction of the Eco-friendly women vocational training workshop in December 2020. Thanks and much gratitude to Rotary Club Bremen Boettcherstraße for the support that enabled us to take the very first steps.
The collection process for plastic waste bottles, which we are reusing as building materials for the eco-friendly workshop, has been and is still going on. .
One major process to have these plastic bottles used as bricks is by filling them with compacted dry soil to make them hard. Women, girls and young mothers have been trained in doing this work and so far 34 women have been trained to do the job. Economically they are earning money from this activity to support their families and take care of their children.
