Summary

The "Hope-Mobile" as we like to call her, is vital to HCU's work. Having a sturdy vehicle that can travel long distances to remote villages ensures we can provide over 3,000 otherwise unreachable people with education and access to services like reproductive health workshops and sanitary pads, micro-finance loans and business training sessions, and sensitisation to issues like gender-based violence and children's rights to education.

Challenge

Fortunately, everyone in our team is still safe, healthy, and uninjured: unfortunately, a few members of the team were hit by a truck while driving to do field work last week. The damages to repair the car are more than the organization can currently afford without having to lay-off key staff members or make other drastic spending cuts. Having a car allows HCU members to travel freely and safely to work each day, as well as to remote villages and schools where we conduct a variety of programs.

Solution

By raising the funds to repair the car, we will be able to continue serving our beneficiaries without having to make cuts to any of our programs: this means we can continue to improve the lives of thousands of women and youth in post-war areas of Uganda.

Long-Term Impact

Continuing to provide our services is vital to empowering post-war community members to recover and build a brighter future for themselves, their families, and the world. HCU's arts programs maintain strength in local culture, while our technology education keeps students up-to-date with international developments. Meanwhile our social courses on female empowerment, children's education, and microfinance business can push forward the area, economically as well as socially and culturally.
