After school, there is the possibility to do an apprenticeship.

These three boys are starting a 2-year apprenticeship as car mechanics at Bukenya Garage in Nyendo.

The practical training only costs the equivalent of 500€ for these 2 years.  125€ pocket money for the first 6 months, then they can work out their own pocket money in this workshop.  This gives about 26€ / month.

In addition, three appprentices have started their school-based training at IMLS.


Rose – Hair dressing
Maria and Martha – Fashion and Design

On January 3rd, 2022 the first semester started for our five nurse apprentices at the Keytume school.

The training will last 5 semesters over 2 1/2 years.

For 7 young people started in March 2023 the 2 – year training at the Mummys Institute in Masaka.

The training includes 4 semesters. The young people are very happy and thank their sponsors from the bottom of their hearts, because without their sponsors this training would not be possible!
