The girls divided in two groups of 6 each want to begin making high end executive sofa chairs (couches) for the up scale market in Uganda. They need to set up a carpentry workshop and display room in the Capital City of Kampala, where they will make and market their products. They are working alongside their two instructors who are more skilled as they polish up their skills.
