In Northern Uganda, just like the rest of Uganda, women are treated as second hand citizens. In Gulu particularly, women have been given very FEW opportunities. Our sewing cooperative helps the community THRIVE by providing income opportunities to poor families, helping girls stay in school by providing free, reusable sanitary pads, and encouraging other women. These communities are deeply grateful for this project,which continues to provide vital opportunities for more than 80 women, their families, and their communities.
Through ongoing communication, they tell us of their two critical needs: medical care and clean water. We will begin focusing on meeting these needs as our reforestation project wraps up. We depend on your monthly financial support to continue meeting the needs of these communities. Thank you for partnering with us in this ongoing work SO THEY CAN THRIVE!
