A post from Kayinga Muddu Yisito, Cotfone


My day began with office work at TULIME ONLUS Headquarters in Palermo, Sicily, Italy where i received a warm formal welcome from TULIME staff Ms. Veronica Schiera and Ms. Marilena Cappuccio. In concluding my office work, i got the opportunity to promote SAMPLE Sandals recycled from waste vehicle Tyres made by Out of Youth in Masaka Municipality & Kyazanga Town Council and thanks to TULIME ONLUS , ITALY for accepting to sell Ugandan Youth Hand Made Sandals at FAIR TRADE MARKET to enable the struggling Out of School Ugandan Youth earn a living to improve their livelihoods. Thanks for European Union financial support through YOU.COM Project┬áthat enabled COTFONE to identify this Creative Recycling Best Practice from Uganda “From Waste To Product; Recycling Waste Tyres Into Sandals, To Save The Environment in Uganda”.
Soon after lunch at TULIME ONLUS President’s home, i had another great opportunity for in-depth COTFONE-TULIME Partnership strengthening dialogue with CO-LEADER, Mr. Francesco Picciotto,the President of TULIME ONLUS with further focus on Education, Health,Livelihoods and Capacity Development in Uganda.
In concluding the day was a networking visit to Dr. Fabio Marciano (International Environmental Consultant) whom we discussed on potential partnership opportunities in the field RECYCLING AND AGRICULTURE between European and Ugandan Entrepreneurs. Thanks to great COTFONE friend and TULIME ONLUS Associate Mr. Fulvio Pernice for coordinating this noble initiative inline with COTFONE’s vision of HEALTHY AND SELF-RELIANT COMMUNITIES IN UGANDA.
Tomorrow is scheduled for visiting Italian Recycling & Agricultural Entrepreneurs interested in cooperating with Ugandan Counterparts.
