Ideas Workshop is a discipleship/skills training ministry of Mission Venture, Uganda. We currently train young men in metal fabrication and carpentry. We hope to add machining in the future to our 7-month annual training program. We have a Ugandan staff of 8 people who help run the workshop and do the training. Three ex-pat volunteers also participate in the workshop. We seek to pass on enough skill and business sense that most of our trainees can go out and set up a small shop to enable them to make money to live on or at least supplement their income. We have been in operation since 2014. We have two workshop sites, Buwambo (20km north of Kampala) and Kajansi (10 km south of Kampala). Our administration function is at the Buwambo site where we have a Ugandan accounting student working part-time under supervision. We are currently using Google sheets for our bookkeeping but are shifting in 2021 to Quick Books.
