About this campaign

The Shoemaking Project is the project that ACI has decided to focus on. This is the case because after CWD have been educated, they can often be found on the streets. This is not what education is created for! Therefore, job opportunities are to be provided. A very sustainable way to do so is by teaching people with disabilities how to make shoes. All arrangements have already been made. The only missing part is the funds. $5.000 is required to start off of the project. Once the project has kicked off, no more funds are required as the business is designed to be self-sustainable.

Once the funds are raised, Damas Mwambenja is continuously going to train a one group of around five students every half a year. After the education, the graduates will work at the stand at the Mwanjelwa market in the city centre of Mbeya. During the course of two years, the $5.006 will be spend and the project will continue and become financially independent.

Use of Funds

Able Child Initiatives (ACI) needs $5,000 for the Shoemaking Project in which 10 people per year will be educated in the shoemaking profession. After two years, the project will continue financially independent.
