FOWAC through support from its donors, driven by GlobalGiving, secured support to 39 girls out of 150 proposed targets to acquire basic scholastic materials for them to return to school. The 39 identified girls were provided uniforms, books, school dues, laundry and hygiene and sanitation equipment.
We are hopeful to meet our target, ,FOWAC appreciate its generous donors and GlobalGiving who dedicated what they have to make a difference in the lives of 39 Orphans and Vulnerable girls in the three schools in Kitgum- (wigweng, Akobi and gweng pa mon primary schools).
As school began, many more girls have not managed to go back to school. This is because they cannot meet demands set by schools, others could not go back to school because they have been forced into marriage and unwanted pregnancy. These are the situations among girls FOWC continue to battle within the community.
Enhancing livelihood for 100 poor women in Bia B is progressing well. Women are progressively investing the revolving fund provided to boost their business, and in their different groups.
The women use the proceeds from the revolving fund to acquire basic needs, pay school fees, medicate their children, save among others.
We appeal to our donors to continue supporting with the little they can to allow us to reach more women groups who are struggling alone in their groups, and struggling with no training in financial discipline, and group dynamic considered core in their group journey.
We we appreciate the contribution of our donor for the generosity and trust demonstrated to us
Enhancing livelihood to 100 poor women has yield huge impact in the lives of vulnarable women in Bia .B.
The women are continuing to revolve the fund provided among themselves and return to the group after a grace period of three months.
The fund has realised its intended purpose and continue to contribute imensly towards the livelihoods of the selected women.
However; in the last three month, the project did not raise fund so as to expand to more women. This could be becuse of the current emerging intermational crisis.
We are always thankful. We call upon our most generous donors to continue stretching their supporting hands to our cause.
Enhancing livelihood for 100 poor women in Bia B, is progressing well. The groups and individuals supported women under the project have continued to progress in their different enterprises with the booster from the revolving fund injected to support them.
