Sun Dried Fruit & Natural Fruit Juice Project. Advise on fruit processing/packaging, cane sugar processing and start-up funding
We have a group of 30 girls that have been training in business skills. They would like to package sun dried fruits and natural fruit juice. The needed equipment and initial input is $3000. We need volunteers to help us raise funds for this project. We would also like to get volunteers with expertise in processing and packaging of sun-dried fruits. Uganda has a wide variety of fruits which come seasonally and become excess, leading to waste of those that cannot be consumed immediately. Most of these varieties can be dried and used later.
Nakyerongosa is working helping women to generate income so as to improve their household welfare through operation of a micro-credit/revolving fund.
Women in Nakyerongosa have been involved in “gift circles” and organized groups locally known as “NIGINA merry go rounds” for a number of years. The “circles” operate in such a way that members (who are mainly women) contribute around 500 – 1,000 Uganda shillings each month and that is used to buy household items that are given to one woman during the “nigina” ceremony.
