COVOID was during the week privileged to host the Regional Director STOMME Foundation East Africa and she was able to visit a number of Youth informal vocational training centers in the districts Rubirizi and Bushenyi. Stromme Foundation supports two components of Community Livelihood Improvement Project (CLIP) implemented by COVOID. The two components include Community Managed Micro-finance (CMMF) and Vocational Education. The project aims at improving household incomes through a saving and loaning methodology, and equipping youth who have dropped out of school with vocational skills. She was able to interact with the apprentices and those who have graduated and are earning. She was also able to offer counsel to the youth and messages of hope to those with no parents. COVOID appreciates the continued support from SFEA. She also managed to interact with Cluster members (a representative body of CMMF or VSLA groups) and offered more tips on how they could become a legal entity and tap into government and other opportunities for development, and as a means of having a stronger voice to advocate for issues that affect their communities.

COVOID expresses gratitude to the Woman Member of parliament Rubirizi district Kesande Grace for the support to two health centres Rugazi and Katerera with ambulances. True to your words it's been challenging for mothers who get complications during delivery to access timely referral services and other needed health assistance. This boost will go a long way in reducing on the number of deaths associated. We acknowledge your concern to the plight of pregnant women and the zeal to contribute to their wellbeing.
The magical savings box that has caused enormous economic transformation in Rubirizi and surrounding areas.
