Community Centre

Our work in the community is just reaching an exciting phase. We have just completed the building of a large community centre, which will provide education, training and relaxation for all the community whilst focusing especially on the youth and the women.
 
There has been a significant impact within the community, none of which could have happened without loyal and generous supporters who have believed and trusted in our work and our commitment to use the money raised in an honest and focused manner.

The AVS Uganda Executive Committee envisage that the Centre will offer a wide variety of facilities and services, including:
·       An Information Services Centre providing information and the sharing of knowledge on development programmes, education, health, life skills, career guidance etc;
·       Development of skills necessary/relevant for present day employment;
·       Links with regional vocational training services to provide student placement/internship opportunities in vocational subjects e.g. IT, secretarial, catering, waitressing;
·       Links with local schools offering reading and study facilities including a library;
·       The development of a wide range of musical experiences including Home of Talent, as well as performances by local and national musicians, women's choirs, annual school festivals and competitions for aspiring local musicians;
·       Introduction to and development of ITC training including Internet use, research skills etc;
·       A rolling programme of seminars linking with Community Development Services, Health department Police, Education, Red Cross etc;
·       A safe and supportive environment and qualified personnel for women, offering counselling, workshops and seminars on relevant topics;
·       Opportunities for volunteering and employment for local tertiary students during vacations;
