The Impact You've Made On The Acholi Quarter

in·dus·tri·ous  (n-dstr-s)

adj.
1. constantly, regularly, or habitually active or occupied; diligent.

 

Industrious.  There's no better word to describe Anyiri Estarina. She makes beautiful paper bead jewelry, cultivates mushrooms, brews a local beer, and embroiders tablecloths to support her family of five. 

For just $250, Project Have Hope enrolled Estarina in a vocational training program to learn knitting, providing her with life-changing, dream-making skills. She is currently employed in the workshop attached to the school in which she studied.  Soon she hopes to purchase a loom which will enable her to start her own business of making school uniform sweaters. With her business skills and determined attitude, we know that she will be successful.

Your support allowed her to access this opportunity. Your support means a new life. Your support enables her to send her children to school, create jobs, and ensure a brighter future for her entire community. Project Have Hope will continue to assist Estarina and other enterprising women in the Acholi Quarter as they rebuild their community, business by business, with your generous support.

Thank you from all of us! This holiday season, share the gift of hope by supporting the industrious entrepreneurs of the Acholi Quarter. You can choose to make a donation in someone's name and receive a festive card from GlobalGiving for this personal gift. Your gift is endless in its impact on the entrepreneurs, their families, and the Acholi Quarter community.
