Our focus for 2023 will be to continue family planning and cervical cancer screening projects for women and “deworming” medication for children. We also plan to start skills training and psychosocial support groups for teenage mothers in five districts. An estimated 650,000 young girls, ages 12 through 18 became pregnant during and after the two-year Uganda wide pandemic school lockdown, the longest of any country. In the Iganga District, one of the districts we serve, some 6000 young girls reportedly became pregnant.
We are still seeking donations of late model tablets and laptops with Windows 10 or later operating systems. We load the devices with educational software and distribute them to partner communities in Uganda. Devices should be in good condition with good screens and internal batteries.
If you would like to make an in-kind donation, please contact us at the email address under Contact.
