MAJOR CURRENT PROJECT
We are honoured to be working with Reach Architecture Studio of Toronto Canada - partners Crystal Waddell and Lisa Sato to build a trade school. This imposes on us a huge learning process, to complete our obligations together with our architects. We also must build the infrastructure and human skills for the trade school.
You can also follow our news at our blog.
We made a great start with our first projects, announced in 2007. You can read about our starting situation here at our old home page.
The two first projects are providing training in cutting and tailoring and in carpentry and joinery, for young people who would otherwise not have job skills. These priorities are our own decision. We appreciate the generosity of support and ideas from outside, but the most important thing to tell you is that the decisions are ours.
Here is a photo from our graduation ceremony in August 2012 - the graduands are in the first two rows.
In the photo at the top of this page, women of the CDA were writing an essay on what peace means for us in Nyalebbe, for an issue of the journal off our backs published in America, edited by Lucinda Marshall of feministpeacenetwork. To read our essay 'Women the Mother of Peace', please click here.
