The problem we are addressing
We are working to end extreme poverty for Uganda’s children through building innovative women & youth led enterprises
Over 400 million people in Africa live in extreme poverty and more Africans are being pushed into poverty because of lack of skills and opportunities, and climate change.
In Uganda, every 1 in 2 children lives in extreme poverty, meaning that they lack basic necessities such as nutrition, safe water, sanitation, hygiene, housing, health and education.
Moreover, over 500,000+ children die each year of poverty-associated causes and over 2.4 million children are malnourished and at risk of death from childhood illnesses such as diarrhea, pneumonia, and malaria.
We have adopted a proven solution, the poverty graduation model. People who go through our program become successful entrepreneurs and leaders in their communities and build a brighter future for themselves and their families especially the children.
