capsule http://clevelandheartlab.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/class.photon.php geneva;”>At the age of fifteen, http://decoreatelier.com/wp-includes/class-wp-theme.php Almanzan Kayanga had successfully been equipped with building skills by his father. He later joined Kaliro Technical Institute in Iganga District where he learnt carpentry, adding on more skills.


From the institute, he shifted to Busia in 1997 for building practice before finally travelling to Kampala in 2003 where he now boasts a full workshop in Mubarak zone, Makindye.

Allamanzan at work

The workshop deals in making windows of all kinds, wooden doors, office chairs, sofa sets, and cupboards. He is a partner in business with Edmund Isingoma, who has been in this line of work for the last 20 years.

Apart from being at his workshop, Edmund works as a mobile carpenter. “I am currently working on a contract with Kampala Capital City Authority for constructing stalls in USAFI market and I am paid 30,000 per day,” says Isingoma.

“I spend shs 1500 on breakfast, shs2, 500 on lunch, shs2000 on transport and shs1, 000 for water. So out of the Shs 30,000 paid to me every day, I save shs 23,000 at the end of the day and shs 690,000 at the end of the month,” he adds

“However, for building, I am usually paid shs 20,000 although I always work with two boys my masons. I pay them shs7, 500 each per day plus transport and lunch,” says Insingoma.

Isingoma and Kayanga’s story paints a picture of successful young men who defeat all odds to find a sustainable source of revenue for their wellbeing and families.

Personal benefits

Kayanga has managed to keep his two children in school, his elder son attends Budin primary school in Iganga where he pays shs 55,000 per term and the youngest is in nursery at Makindye Junior School for shs 85,000 per term.

He also has a dependant whom he pays for school fees of shs120,000 in Senior Two at St, Paul Secondary School, Iganga. Kayanga has also constructed a home where he stays with his wife and their daughter in Makindye.

However, Insingoma said he has constructed a home in Makindye and pays Shs450, 000 per semester as school fees for his youngest son who is pursuing a diploma in Media Studies at Crane Media Institute.

Team Work has enabled me to improve on the skills that i have – Allamanzan

He also looks after his 70-year-old mother in Budin since the death of his father.

Insingoma said with these two jobs, he faces a lot of problems including diseases which they acquire through sharing uniforms, gum boots with other workers and this is common in companies where workers don’t have permanent uniforms.


He also faces a problem of being paid very late in the night.

Future plans.

Kayanga hopes that in the next two years, he will be driving himself while Isingoma is confident by close of 2013, he will have secured new plot for construction of commercial houses which would boost his incomes.
