Update: Carpentry and Tailoring

15 students were enrolled in phase one of our Carpentry Programme. Unfortunately 3 had to drop out due to family circumstances but we are delighted that 6 of our graduates are now self employed and running their own businesses and the other 6 are employed in the workshop where our Trainer operates.

35 women signed up for our Tailoring Programme, 30 of whom have now graduated and are now employed and using their new skills. The Programme had such a positive impact on the local community that 35 more women have signed up to join the next group - what a great success.

Pictured below - trainees at the Spotlight workshop putting the final touches to the 75 desks they constructed for a school in the local district. Each desk can seat 3 pupils which means that 225 school children will now have decent seats to sit on!


Big Give Raises nearly £17,000!

WOW - thank you very much! We have raised an amazing £16,941 in the Big Give Christmas Challenge with match funding from Friends of the REED Foundation. All of the match funding has now been secured! 

The Big Give Christmas Challenge double donations might be over but it isn't too late to support Spotlight this Christmas. If you were not able to get online during the Big Give, please do consider making a direct donation to our Christmas Appeal to help us hit our £25,000 target. Our fantastic team will use this donation to empower health volunteers by constructing and equipping the Tailoring Design Centre.
