On behalf of the board and community members, I am pleased to share with you RARUDO quarterly Report of November 2011.We hope you will take a few minutes to read about our progress over the past months, and about the women, children and men we work for every day.
Thanks to your incredible generosity and contribution from our dear donors. Your support raised through this year is already at work changing lives of our people. With your donations, our people from Tororo, Busia, and Bugiri were ble get some improved seeds and foods that at least made them go through the long experienced harvesting period without much starving. This support was timely in that helped improve the nutrition for especially our people living positive with HIV/AIDS.
At last now there is enough rain, people everywhere are very busy with garden work, and this brings hope that there will be enough food inthis second rain season, they will have enough to eat and some for income. Our orphans and other vulnerable children (OVC) receivedschooling materials and uniforms and going to school is just the start of their journey to a better life. By getting an education these OVCs and girl - childcan find good jobs and lift themselves, their families and their communities out of grinding poverty.
To discover more, our women are making great achievement as in economic empowerment through their agriculture development, goat’s projectintegrated with piggery is gradually transforming their lives economically. In the entire three district ladies are greatly struggling to change the societyby spending much time gardening and ensure there is enough food in the house and a surplus for micro-income earning for sustainability. Tailoring and craftmaking is another inspiring project in which has helped 40 women get a vital knowledge in generating a side income and will be helping over 100 women over the coming 2 years. Thank you for standing with us as we continue to work toward improving the Lives of women and children and families everywhere, and preserving the environmentthat sustains us all. I want to extend my sincere regards to all friends in the US, UK and everyone who have and are making this work possible.
May God bless you.
