Sewing and Knitting Programme Expansion
HUG Charity Foundation (HCF) is an Australian based not for profit organization that focuses on establishing sustainable partnerships between two different cultures and has been working side by side with communities surrounding Lubanda Village, in south western Uganda since 2008.
HCF currently have a very successful tailoring and knitting programme as part of the vocational studies at the Suubi Secondary School in Uganda. This programme began in 2015, when the school first opened, with 2 sewing machines shared by 12 tailoring students and 1 knitting machine shared by 9 knitting students during that first year.
Knitting and tailoring students have been taught to make skirts, trousers, shirts and sweaters as part of these vocational classes. Among other practical, hands on learning initiatives, this also enables the students to produce the school uniforms for the following intake of students at Suubi SS.
