The unemployment rate in Uganda alone is a staggering 60%, and because education isn’t free, most children don’t get the knowledge or trade skill development they need to be productive adults. The Reckoning International is a nonprofit established by Tim Troyer that seeks to empower the impoverished with opportunities so they can make a life for themselves. On a trip to Uganda with this nonprofit, Tim was speaking with a native who believed there was a great need for high-quality knives, so Tim took action.
Along with two other knife makers, Tim began teaching the local youth how to produce handmade knives—a real life skill that can help them make a good life for themselves. We are very lucky to be able to provide these opportunities for people in Africa, and you can help too!
