TIS Charity – News from Uganda

Representatives of Kangala e.V. visiting the TIS GmbH

Charity - TIS GmbH bekommt Besuch von Vertretern von Kangala e.V. aus Uganda

September 6, 2016

By the end of August TIS was welcoming guests from Uganda. After five years the project leaders of the charity organization Kangala e.V. visited Germany again and used their stay for a friendly exchange with the donors, members, sponsors and supporters of the project.

tis-kangala-charity-3For more than a decade now TIS is engaged with Kangala e.V. from Bocholt.
For instance, we do not buy christmas presents for our clients and use the money to support Kangala e.V. instead. We also communicate this in our annual Christmas greeting card to our clients.

On August 30, 2016 director Margret Katende and school social worker Max met with three bord members of Kangala e.V. at the TIS headquarters for coffee and cake.
They were very interested in sharing their experiences with the supporters, without whom their work would not be possible. So they finally got a chance to personally say thank you and to report on the challenges ahead.

The two reported about the current developments on-site, but also had a lot to tell about the background of their work. To compare the trainings in Africa and in Germany, Tobias van der Linde - our apprentice in his 1st year - reported on the dual education system in Germany.

In Uganda on the other hand a training rather takes place directly in the production facilities. The "apprentice" has to buy and bring his own tools and has to pay the chief trainer during the first year.
For the proteges of Kalangala that would be impossible without financial support, because most children who are taught in the center, do not have parents and are destitute.

The most recent project:

The Center will receive its own pump!

That makes things a lot easier: the path is shorter and the pump is no longer also used by others. In the past this had led to problems on occasion, because not all users were handling the pump carefully, but no one had felt responsible except us for maintenance and repair.
So we leave the existing pump to the public and can meet the demand for the center using the new pump. The water is pumped from a depth of 120 m and will be sufficient to supply the center with water. For the operation of the pump either solar technology can be used, or a diesel generator. With solar technology, the center would be independent, but the initial investment will be higher.

Again, donations are needed.

Previously it was part of the school day of the students to obtain water in cans from the publicly accessible pump. This had cost a lot of time, but will hopefully be an issue of the past soon.
Also without this pump growing vegetables would only be possible during the rainy season. The rainy season usually lasts 3 months, but in recent years it was only 4 weeks and the grown vegetables withered before they could be harvested.
