About Us

Aims of the Project Royal Academy Salon Project is an initiative which was stated with the aim of improving and uplifting of vocational skills of vuhuerable ladies in, Masaka district, Uganda. The major aim of the project is to reduce high rates of unemployment of unemployed young ladies in the area.
