20$ enhances EMTCT and a health child raised.

 With support of 50,000 Uganda shillings approximately 20$, SORAK with support from GlobalGiving donors has been able to improve the life of one teen mother widow.  Despite her HIV/AIDS status and that of her new husband,she has been able to raise an AIDS free health baby boy.  See detailed report attached.

When Olivia was provided a seed grant of 20$, she was able to invest into start up capital by buying a charcoal stove, a kilogram of wheat flour, a table and baking powder.  She is now able to earn a daily income of 8$ which is far above the 2$ dollars below which one would be categorised to be living under the poverty line.

Olivia now life a changed life free from stigma.  She continues to preach positive living among other fellow positive young women and men.

Great thanks to our donors and those who will donate more to better lives of many more teen mothers in similar situations.

widows venture into lemon grass production

Widows now venture into Lemon grass growing for essential oils production and sales

SORAK is pleased to report to her global giving donors that the support provided since 2010 has helped to prepare widows into organized and productive groups.

These groups have had the opportunity to get support from the recently introduced project of lemon grass growing. The Common Wealth of Australia has provided SORAK and vulnerable groups to grow lemon grass and distil essential oils from this unique crop.

In addition to goats, chicken and piglets, widows will now have the opportunity to sell lemon grass on a sustainable basis with a lot of environmental benefits
