This Mother's Day, consider honoring a special woman in your life by making a donation in her name.
Just $25 provides month-long tuition for a woman to study vocational training, such as knitting tailoring or designing. With increased skills a Ugandan mother can find work and better provide food, housing and medical care for her family.
Ayoo Florence is one such mother. Florence fled to the Acholi Quarter in 1994 to escape the war after the rebels killed all five of her brothers. She is the sole provider for seven children: five of her own and two orphaned nieces. Florence graduated from the intensive designing training program in March and is already using these coveted skills to embark on a flourishing career. Florence is making and designing bed sheets and traveling to Sudan to explore markets beyond Uganda. With such hard work and tenacity, we know she will be able to provide all of her children with a brighter future.
"Slowly by slowly," is a common expression in Uganda. It's a reminder that change doesn't happen overnight, but with consistent and steadfast diligency, great change can come. And together, we can be a part of that change.
Hope and a little help make all the difference. Together we can transform the community of the Acholi Quarter.
