ABOUT 20 participants are in a five-day floral and soap making training at the National Art Gallery.
Trainer John Fadama said such training improves one’s skills on how to do something one will benefit from.
Fadama said he has been conducting similar trainings in the past for women groups in floral arrangements, and is happy to see some women venturing into the floral business.
Fadama said floral and soap making is a skill one can learn.
“I have those skills and I want to share to others that is why I am willing to train people.
“We must share the skills we have to others in that way we will satisfy that we train others too of what we know,” Fadama said
He said this is his first training this year for floral, landscaping and soap making.
Fadama said the training is more on practical than theory; and at the end of the training participants should be able to implement the skills they will learnt during the five days at their homes.
“From experience some women attended past trainings never did what they have learnt.
“If we have the passion, we will always love to learn new skills and willing to beautify our homes with flowers,” Fadama said.
Meanwhile one of the participants Jean Akotee said she is happy to participate in the training, “because this covid situation really affect people”.
“I want to do something to help my family, therefore when I knew about this training, I really wanted to join because I know I will learn some new skills from such trainings.
“Now I know how to make soap for dishwashing and in any event, I don’t have enough money I can make it by myself and use my dishwashing,” Akotee said.
