Kabale (Crafts Section)
Kabale, a town with about 40,000 inhabitants, is the administrative centre of the Kabale District.
Edirisa UK rent a house on Makanga Hill which is where the office, tailoring workshop and volunteer accommodation are located.
The house is well equipped with fridge, oven and washing machine – a luxury for volunteers! Volunteers are responsible for their own food and cooking. There are 2 double bedrooms and a dormitory that sleeps 5 people. The dormitory has an en suite bathroom and there is a shower room and 2 separate toilets. The house is set in well maintained grounds, is fenced with a double gate and there is a night watchman who is also the gardener.
Volunteers who are based at other locations can stay at the house at the weekends for a small charge which covers the gas and hot water costs.
The house is a base for the Crafts Development Manager and for volunteers working in the Craft Section. From time to time other volunteers also stay at the house whilst working on specific projects.
