Exciting and Exclusive News for YOU!

A granny and her new home

YOU did so much for your grandmothers in 2013!

Through the grandmother project, you built:

  • 37 homes (includes a house, kitchen, and latrines)
  • 6 house
  • 20 kitchens
  • 10 latrines

The homes YOU have built keep YOUR grannies and the children they care for safe and healthy.

We were also able to give out 72 micro finance loans to grannies to give them the capital to start their own businesses. YOU made a difference in the lives of women like Beatrice. Because of YOUR support, Beatrice was able to open her own store and can now pay the school feels of her three children.

YOU are breaking the cycle of poverty and helping grannies like Beatrice be good role models for the young girls and women who are growing up in their community.
