Location: Moyo, Uganda
We’ve renovated an old workshop space and provided tools, equipment, and materials to allow the hospital to make and repair furniture and complete small projects.
Moyo Hospital previously had a workshop where craftsmen built and repaired various equipment and supplies such as wheelchairs, prosthesis, walkers, crutches, and furniture. They had to close that shop due to lack of funding.
Pipeline Worldwide has facilitated the reopening of the workshop by providing a new workshop design, tool and equipment specifications and procurement, power design and procurement, product design ideas including instructions and prototypes, sourcing and supplying initial inventory of raw materials, and developing a business plan for sustainable income.
The Grand Re-Opening Ceremony was held in June and the craftsmen are successfully making furniture and repairs.
