Our recent visit to the River Fund Women's Association of Kitgum found an organized structure of four groups presenting educational workshops on HIV/AIDS Long Term Survival Skills to the villages of the 2 local districts. Along with their presentation, they weigh and measure infants for signs of malnutrition and give special nutritional counseling to mothers. Future plans are to expand the Survival Skills workshops to 20 more villages within their travel range, and to add cooperative kitchen gardens and micro-financing to the program. Funds are needed for transport, umbrellas and raincoats for travel in the rainy season, and seeds to share with workshop participants. They would like to purchase goats - $25 for a female goat for widows and child headed households and $125 for a male exotic goat for breeding for the community. With funding they can also start poultry breeding projects.
