We have moved a long mile together. This year we have provided 402 women from Gulu and Amuru Districts with an opportunity to learn ho to read and write, they have learnt too child parenting an nutrition making them better feed their children and their families with nutritious recipes!

We have a goal of extending this opportunity to 800 women next year and we can still walk this important journey together. We are committed to continue supporting this life changing program. Literacy is a human right not a favor.

How revolution to see women attending community meetings, standing and contribute their views to be captured in the community development plan, to see women able to open books and read passages, it is a testament how literacy can uplift self-esteem and a level confidence achieved among grassroots women.
