Summary

A changed mom changes her family and community: Hoffnung fuer Uganda is building a vocational training center for moms in a rural community in Uganda. Why? Because young Ugandan people lack education/jobs, especially teen moms. We train skills like sewing, soap making and sustainable agriculture, so that moms can support their own families. So far we have 1 building, but need to add classrooms. 40 women were empowered so far. With your help, we can add 20 more/year and transform the whole area!

Challenge

A teenage girl shouldn't have to be a mom. And yet, in Uganda, thousands of girls become mothers per month. Why did they become mothers? Mostly through abuse. Why were they abused? Mostly because of extreme poverty and lack of education: many girls don't attend school/drop out. They are at high risk of child marriages, prostitution, or other exploitation in low-paying jobs. They cannot afford food or rent, let alone school fees for their own children. And so the cycle of poverty continues.

Solution

Hoffnung fuer Uganda and "Suubi Teen MOPS" empower young families through education: the moms receive vocational training (sewing, soap making, agriculture, crafts), and the children go to school thanks to child sponsors. We started our work in a slum in Kampala in 2017, but in 2021 have moved headquarters near Kapeeka. Here, we are building a vocational training center. We are developing an organic farm on 5 acres of land, along with classrooms for our women.

Long-Term Impact

We empower moms and their families to become agents of change in their own communities. Thus, we want to continue our focus on young mothers, but also share opportunities with the community as a whole: We want to teach sewing, soap making, reading, business skills, perhaps even art and music classes for kids and adults alike.
