Daphine

That is how Dauphine describes her life then. Her father had died from HIV/AIDS and her mother couldn't provide for their young family without him.

Without school, Daphne’s future was laid out in front of her. Most orphaned girls grow up in poverty. They tend to get married young. Their children are less likely to go to school. They are trapped in an endless cycle of poverty.

Thankfully, Daphne’s life took a different turn. A small primary school opened right in her village. It was free and it was meant for HIV/AIDS orphans like her. She was one of the lucky children who got to go to Mama Africa sponsored Primary Schools. 

She told us "I got a chance to put on shoes and have free education, which I never believed in my life."

She learned to believe again. She worked hard to do well in school and you were there to help her whenever she faced trouble. Last year all of her hard work paid off. She was admitted to

Daphine is an amazing young woman and we know she will do amazing things for the world. Her success is only possible because she you gave her the opportunity.

Thank you!

Update: Sanitary Napkins Help Girls Stay in School

Girls received their hygiene products

Students are in their last term of the school year and are ready to end the year strong!  Thanks to you, the girls don’t have to miss any school days because of their periods, and will be able to keep up their grades just like the boys.  Sometimes it can be difficult for girls to keep up in school after they begin their menstruation cycle.  It’s common for girls to remain at home during their periods and can miss 3-6 days of school every month because they don’t have the proper sanitary napkins.  Missing that amount of school every month can negatively affect their grades, despite their best efforts to keep up.  If their grades suffer they might be forced to drop out so they can be home to help their family with the daily chores.

Every girl at Mama Africa the voice Uganda Project is provided with sanitary napkins and are able to stay in school all month long!  The girls are also developing a firm confidence that they did not have before they were provided with sanitary napkins.  They no longer have to use unsanitary or uncomfortable methods for caring for their periods like leaves or old clothing.  They can stay in school, concentrate on their academics, and succeed. 

Thank YOU for giving YOUR GIRLS the proper feminine products they need to stay in school month after month!

This August, Give a Gift of a Home for shafic

September 2016 second term school holiday is just around the corner, and we can't think of a better way to honor you all who have given a sponsorship gift in your or someone else’s name to help some of the thousands of children living on the streets of Uganda.

A gift to Mama Africa the voice Uganda would help children like Shafic, age 12, who was found on the streets sleeping in an old car, whom people referred him to as a "Robber".  Shafic narrates, "I never saw my father nor my mum so I never believed in parental Love.  My Grandmother tried but she never had enough to sustain me in school so I was given to one who said she was my Auntie In this she used to lock me in the house she claimed that she was preventing me from walking away from home since I wasn't going to school."

But one day Shafic’s( Auntie) left the house unlocked, and walk away he did, towards the capital city of Kampala, then in makidnye "I came alone all the way, very scared since it had already grown dark.  I kept looking back but no one was coming after me.  God helped me and I got to this small town, which was still busy.  However, people started closing their stores to return home.... I became very worried and afraid when I realized there were no people moving in that town any more.  I was scared and I kept asking myself, what if sorcerors got me here, wild animals or dogs attacked me because I was seeing them move around?"

Eventually I got used to street life one day policemen and the local council found and offered to help him by taking him to Mama Africa the voice Uganda Drop-In Center in Kampala.  At Mama Africa the voice Uganda Shafic says "I feel very safe here and okay now.  I play with my friends, learn and also get food.  I thank Mama Africa the voice Uganda because they are going to take me to my grandmother’s place to say hello and visit.”

On March 7th, shafic was accompanied by Mama Africa social workers to his grandmother’s home, where he received a very warm welcome.  His grandmother praised Mama Africa for their "merciful heart", adding that nobody else would have done such an act of mercy.

Shafic's life was transformed with the help of Mama Africa the voice Uganda, and we couldn't do our work without the generous support of our donors like you.  Thank you for your help in returning Shafic to a loving family.  Won't you consider making another donation in honor of of any one in your family or your birthday?  To donate, please go on global giving .org then type in Mama africa the voice Uganda.
