Open for Business!
07 February, 2017
We are officially operational in Kamuli, Uganda!!
February 2, 2017 will forever be a special date in our hearts because that day marked our first official date of operations in the village of Kamuli! We have been working so hard to get to this day and are totally thrilled that it has finally arrived.
We got to spend the day hosting nearly 50 women who showed up to be interviewed for our new T+G Kamuli branch. It was so much fun meeting with these ladies and hearing their dream business ideas! Our expectations were blown away with the number of women who showed up excited about the prospect of being a T+G program member. These women travelled from four different villages just to be interviewed! We are continuing interviews next week as well and will know which women will be our newest program members by this time next week! (!!!!!).
We are so over the moon thrilled about our partnership in Kamuli with The Vine Hope Uganda. They are an amazing organization that empowers children and women (and whole communities) in the Kamuli District. They are also a team of ridiculously awesome people that we have serious amounts of fun dreaming with. The Vine has given us a special place on their land where we will be building our new headquarters/ workshop. We are currently in the big process of meeting with architects and getting all of the necessary approvals from the national boards BUT we wanted to take time to celebrate all the victories along the way.
TODAY The Vine land officially has a working water well!! This is an amazing step forward for The Vine and T+G construction plans but an even bigger gift to the surrounding community. People from all over the community will be flocking to this well to bring clean water to their families- and when they do, we can't wait to be there, ready to shower them in joy and love and infinite hugs!
