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!

Please consider supporting us on Global Giving’s August ,September 2016, so your donation gets a 50% match and goes further! 

Because of your giving, For Mama Africa the voice Uganda, 2016 is a year of extraordinary growth, change and challenges. The water project in Kosovo is operating, the volunteer staff are learning more, and the average age of the children we serve has increased, as has the length of stay and the level of care required. But even amidst dramatic change, we have been unwavering in our determination and our ability to meet the need presented by our clients and respond with appropriate solutions. We have maintained our focus on providing a supportive, safe and nurturing environment for our community’s most vulnerable children and young adults, even in the face of some immense challenges.

Our primary school and secondary school students are back at school and studying hard.  This year, we have increased emphasis on math and science to help students gain the background and skills the workforce in Uganda seeks. 

We believe in well-rounded education, including physical education. We're thrilled that thanks to some very special donors we have at long last been able to get the land safely fenced and we have farming ongoing and the water project the field will be enjoyed by children from the village and nearby schools as well.

On a related note, our children in candidate classes 2016 Primary 7, O-level and A-level are starting their mocks examinations soon and we ask you to pray for them!

We have partnered with different schools and teachers around the communities to help students with difficulties in understanding go to school.  Every child deserves to go to school.  We also have two schoolchildren with serious medical needs – Jovia is diagnosed with a chest infection that is said that she got it as a small child especially the time she never had anyone taking care of her, and a teenager Gloria is battling with HIV and cervical cancer any support to her will be highly appreciated. We hope that both can be back at school soon. Check out our Facebook for updates on https://www.facebook.com/winnieafrica or https://www.facebook.com/mamaafricaorganization.maio

And on the outreach front, we are providing hoping so much to empower the community with economic skills and how to protect the environment. We can’t wait to see our funding proposal that we made to global giving getting through the entire community is aware and waiting.

We are also giving a report about the school of beauty that resumed this year, girls are doing so far so good and you will be able to see some of their pictures uploaded here. We still luck more Equipment’s to have the MAMA PEARL SCHOOL OF BEAUTY complete and fully installed so any donation will make allot of difference to the entire community.

None of this would be possible without you, so we extend our sincere gratitude. Thank you for making a difference!

Greetings and Happy New Year!
I am writing to share with you what your contributions to this project have accomplished. I wish to illustrate these accomplishments by sharing the life story on one child Jovia under Mama Africa the voice Uganda care, support and the hopeful impact she will have on future generations. Through your generosity, care and support, this one changed life will continue to bring life and hope to the next generation.


Jovia was orphaned at age two. Her Mother raised her until she was eight, when she was removed from school and placed in another home for child Labor.


At age Eight, Jovia was working the ground, digging from 6 in the morning until 1 in the afternoon. Then she had to collect firewood, carry water a great distance and prepare meals. She ate just one meal in a full day of physical hardship. This meal was her breakfast, lunch and dinner. She lacked access to soap, clean clothes, and a mattress to sleep on at night.


Jovia was beaten by her new caregivers, she lived in poverty. She felt abandoned and alone. Life seemed hopeless, until one day a lady walked into her village and noticed her condition. Before she came to help Jovia Escaped from that home took a bicycle and ended up to the local council where she was announced seeking for whoever knew her but no one did.
The Local council contacted Mama Africa and asked for rescue, Mama Africa took her through the entire rescue process and Rescued Jovia in a maternal sense and provided emotional care, education, and a safe place for her to be nurtured and education.
Jovia joined Mama Africa in 2012, when she was in Primary 2 Class. Today she is a strong, determined, hopeful, thankful, and capable 12 year-old, who desires to serve others. She is currently doing great in School. She is on her way to becoming a Pastor.


Jovia has journeyed through much difficulty and continues to move forward with determination. Mama Africa the voice Uganda, offered her hope and a road that leads to service in her community. She is a testimony of endurance and strength and a face of light and hope in a country facing continual adversity.
She says, "Mama Africa the voice Uganda has been my shelter and refuge to run to. They have stayed with me, always listened to me when I need someone to talk to, they have given me their time, cried when I cried, made me to laugh and put a smile on my face again."


Jovia's story is a success story. You can rejoice in knowing you helped write the chapters in this young girl’s life. Your donations are seeds sown into fertile ground, yielding a crop and a harvest that will impact lives today and tomorrow.
Thank you for giving so that children like Jovia can have hope. We give thanks to you, to the staff of Mama Africa the voice Uganda, and every heart that cries for change in a world that seems dark and hopeless.
