Market stall for Uganda project

The Rotary Club of Woy Woy has run a stall at markets on the Woy Woy waterfront to raise money for the Pure Joy women empowerment project in Uganda.

Some of the items sold at the stall were made in Uganda, " way back when travel was possible", said club president Ms Joan Redmond.

Other items were made locally.

"All the funds raised on the day supported the project which helps disadvantaged women gain skills in tailoring, hairdressing and beauty and provides reusable sanitary items for girls in need," she said.

The project ended the year with seven graduates in tailoring and 10 in hairdressing and beauty.

"We are very proud to support this vital project which helps disadvantaged women in Uganda to gain vocational skills they can use within their own community," said Ms Redmond.

"They have survived so many set-backs in 2020.

"It's uplifting to see the happy, confident smiles."
