GRANARY STRIPPED BARE!

Thanks to a great team of volunteers the Granary is now stripped to it’s bare bones!

This has shown us both that we have a huge challenge before us,  and that it’s a beautiful building with great and exciting potential!

This June we had our first ever meeting on the top floor overlooking the city – yes, we did do a risk assessment, no it doesn’t have glass in the windows yet, and, yes it was breezy!

Our building team have obtained a license to put up scaffolding for one year from work commencing. We now have water connected, electricity, drains and a loo for builders – we even have an address, which was, strangely, a rather difficult thing to get!

The “tender package” is being put together by our architects and engineers – which has been a terribly slow process – When we have all the drawings and calculations we can then give it all to builders and ask for quotes for our first phase of building.

Thanks for all the interest shown so far and for your kind thoughts, prayers and suggestions.

If you would like to invest in this project private message me, or send to HOPE, P.O. Box 230, Worcester. WR5 3ZE.  U.K.

Introducing…Kairos Business Support

Mama Ketrah peanut butter

Allow me to introduce Mama Ketrah. With the help of some mentoring and a micro loan she has improved her small shop in Kampala, Uganda – and developed a delicious line – “Mama Ketrah’s peanut butter”

Tsusabe Uganda

This is Tsusabe. He used to produce furniture as almost a sole trader but with help, and much hard work, he has opened a timber yard, increasing his profits by selling to other furniture makers and also cutting out a long drive to the timber yard.

By exporting HOPE we are enabling friends, like Tsuabe and Mama Ketrah, to not only make a living, but also to produce increased employment opportunities for others.
