P-World of Design Free Skilling Camp for Nakivale Refugee Settlement

KAMPALA, Uganda - Feb. 5, 2023 - PRLog -- Located in Nakivale Refugee Settlement in Uganda, the P-World Of Design Free Skilling Camp is making a significant impact on the lives of refugees. Founded by interior architect and entrepreneur Dr. Phiona Charlene Namanya, the camp has successfully trained 250 refugees in a variety of skills in its first month-long cohort - this graduation ceremony was aired on NBS TV and UBC TV. The camp is set to take place every three months, and later on expand into other refugee camps across Uganda with the goal of empowering as many refugees as possible in skills such as tailoring, basketry, soapmaking, crafts, bricks and pavers making, baking, I.T, English language and financial literacy.

The P-World Of Design Free Skilling Camp provides refugees with the opportunity to gain valuable skills that can help them become self-sufficient and build better lives for themselves and their families. Participants in the camp have reported feeling more confident and empowered as a result of the training they have received, some have found jobs and others started their own businesses.

In addition to the practical skills training, the camp also offers financial literacy and English language courses to help refugees understand how to sell their products, manage their money and plan for their future. The impact of the P-World Of Design Free Skilling Camp is evidently already being felt in the Nakivale Refugee Settlement, and with plans to continue the camp every three months, the hope is to empower as many refugees as possible through the power of education and skill development.
