HOW DOES ONE BUILD A COMMUNITY CENTER?
AT A TIME
Children and women are the most affected categories of people by the violent insurgency and its effects in Northern Uganda which pitted the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) rebels fighting with Uganda Government troops from 1986 to 2006.
For the recovery and long term development of post-conflict northern Uganda in general, and Acholi sub region in particular to be sustainable; crucial projects specially designed for improving the quality of life for children and women are needed to be fast-tracked.

The project will bring financial self-sustainability to the organization through sale of bakery products and hire of facilities at the center.
It will involve, and have full support from the community structures that will ensure sustainability of the initiative for a long time.
The child mothers will have employable skills for income-generation, self-esteem boosting and life-long benefits.
The expected results are countless. Community support for vulnerable children and child mothers in terms of acceptance, case management, referral, & social capital.
Vulnerable children & child mothers will have their self-esteem & positive mental attitude restored.
A multi-purpose children & women center established to offer facilities for trainings, meetings, accommodation for
both the organization & others.
Vulnerable children enrolled in school.
Child mothers skilled in bakery, hairdressing, tailoring, and beauty therapy.
Children are the future of society and without adequate nutrition, medical care and education, they will not be empowered enough to face the challenges of life when they are adults; and, also lay foundation for the generation after them.
Meanwhile women face cultural bias in terms of sexual and gender-based violence and yet they contribute more to farm and household labor than men.
Women are also overburdened with reproduction, while young girls face abuse in forms of rape, defilement which at times result into early pregnancy and birth, diseases like HIV/AIDS, and trauma.
WHAT IS THERE NOT TO LOVE?
The economic benefits this will bring are exponential. Donate today and be part of the change.
I am committed to the belief that poverty would end and we would all be in a much better place if half the human race (women) were empowered to prosper.
