Early in the morning this young man came to use the sewing machines at the RRU tailoring hub. His name is Ivan and he is one of the students who completed the training program here. Ivan says this is the only skill he has to make money for his family. When he makes a shirt like this he can make 10,000 shillings (about $3.70) for his labour. Ivan is eager to learn more tailoring skills to improve his earning potential.

About Us

Ramona’s Reach began as a dream in the mind of Ramona Reimer. Having worked with children in Haiti, Ramona’s dream was to work at an orphanage somewhere in Africa. Sadly, she lost her life in 2009 at age 26, after fighting cancer for three and a half years. Her family continued her dream through amazing circumstances and have been building a faith-based orphanage and education centre in Pamora, Uganda ever since.
