Transforming lives through craft
Since our founding in 2017, our small team has been united by the desire to see change in the impoverished city of Kampala, Uganda. It is our hope that the work we facilitate will create a sustainable livelihood for people in Uganda.
We began our teaching with Personal Care Items including women’s sanitary protection and soap-making, and recently added lotions, creams, healing salves and balms. In conjunction with this latest addition we began a course in horticulture with Introduction to Growing Healing Herbs.
Soon after Personal Care we began teaching basic sewing skills which were then applied to Quilting (including quilts, table runners and placemats), Bags (including totes, handbags and backpacks), and finally Beginning Dressmaking (beginning pattern drafting). Mosaic Arts in the form of planters and wall art, and Jewelry-making are two of our latest courses.
Through teaching functional craft, Glory Bound Ministry provides an opportunity for people to escape poverty and to become skillful entrepreneurs. Teaching our students to locally source all materials and supplies for their products has been a really important first step in this process. We also are in the planning stages of teaching bookkeeping and marketing skills.
