You made Kara fearless

Kara was only 10-years-old when her mother left her at home to cook dinner alone. While cooking, an unfamiliar man approached her asking questions. Kara sweetly answered his question not thinking much about it. He persuaded Kara to follow him into the woods by saying he’d give her money for more food. Kara being an innocent child followed him. After reaching a distance from her house, he began to rape her. She began to cry in pain, but he threatened to kill her if she continued to cry. After Kara’s assault, her family searched for ways to find justice. You gave Kara and her family the justice they were looking for when they found EDJA. The perpetrator was caught by EDJA’s legal team and brought to the police. The community was overjoyed to have him put behind bars. He not only sexual assaulted Kara but many other girls in her community, but unlike Kara, they kept quiet about their attacks.

You guided Kara towards healing. After her attack, Kara was able to receive medical treatment and counseling. She can now move forward and go to school without fear.

Female attendance on the rise in YOUR schools!

Students ranging from Primary to University students started the school year in February. We are proud to have 780 students enrolled in your schools this year! Out of the 780 students enrolled, a total of 56% of students are female. Making female attendance up 2% from last year!

 

Your efforts and encouragement have given girls the strength to attend school. Every donation made to EDJA has made female students feel safer to walk to and from school. We also welcomed a few new bright girls in the nursery classes this year in Nyaka Primary School and Kutamba Primary School. 

Many girls like Amelia are grateful to be able to go to school. Amelia’s Grandmother enrolled her in Nyaka after being orphaned. After starting at Nyaka, Amelia learned how to read and write. Amelia is now a Primary Seven student in the debate club. Because of the debate club, Amelia wants to use her voice to become an advocate to speak up for other children.

You helped many students like Amelia find their dreams. Many students wouldn’t be in school at all if it wasn’t for the support they receive from you!

You give survivors a chance

Thank you for being a champion fighting child abuse, sexual assault, and domestic violence in rural Uganda! Thanks to you, EDJA has had undergone exciting changes in the last year! Not only has the EDJA Foundation merged with Nyaka to address sexual assault in Uganda, but EDJA has also opened a second healing center at in Kanungu where survivors can go for emergency medical support, counseling, and legal advocacy

EDJA works with community police, judiciary, and leaders so survivors can receive the justice they deserve. So far, you are helping more than 80 survivors work towards their healing. This includes children as young as four years old. You are giving survivors the loving support they need to work toward their healing.

Since the launch of your EDJA Healing Center, more than 400,000 people have been educated about sexual and domestic violence through school visits and radio programs.

Thanks to your generous support, we held the second annual Walk to End Gender-Based Violence in July. You brought 3,000 people together to march for equality and listen to great speakers share about how they can help their community fight sexual and domestic violence.

Because of you, communities in Uganda are learning how to support survivors and find help when they need it.

You are a true champion in the fight against sexual and domestic violence! Thank you!
