Thank you for opening our eyes now we leave in a whole new world! your generos contribution have supported us to change our lives. 

“Before I joined the literacy program I was experiencing domestic violence at home, one of the many causes I discovered was poor communication and misinterpretation of basic facts which I dint have any idea, we were arguing with my husband and my family members a lot. The deepest pain I had was my inability to support my children with their school homework and challenges related to making daily losses with my small business". Said Mary

280 women have cpompleted their 8 month adult literacy training and bellow they are key otcomes among the participants.

  • Reduced GBV in families 
  • Shared responsibility among men and women
  • Improved savings skills
  • Increased respect by women on for their spouses
  • Improved governance at household level
  • Improved writing skills
  • Ability to express themselves 
  • Increased tolerance by learned women
  • Improved social relations
  • Better conflict resolutions
  • Increased participation and inclusiveness.

Women like Mary are the reason why adult literacy program is important because the benefits lift the entire community. 

We have achieved this together and we  are committed to continuing training more women  literacy skills. Consider giving a monthly gift of  $50 to train 10 women in Uganda 

Thank you
