What a wonderful success! With your help, we are thrilled to report that we raised more than $12K to be used to start new Entrepreneurship Clubs in Uganda. Our goal? To give this next generation the tools they need, both life skills and entrepreneurial skills, to create sustainable incomes for themselves, raising both their families and their communities from poverty.
In our expansion into Uganda, our new Country Director, Elizabeth Nakato, has already started partnering with vocational training and empowerment organizations, the refugee settlement community and high schools. GlobalGiving, who we partnered with for this crowdfunding campaign, will disperse the funds raised in October which will enable us to create 20 new clubs. All kinds of activities go into creating these clubs including the training of teachers and networking of the schools who are participating.
We are so grateful to all those who contributed to this campaign. And to those who became aware of what we do for the first time, we urge you to learn more about our work in Rwanda and Uganda. Empowering youths and their communities and enabling them to break the cycle of poverty is gratifying work. We hope you’ll join us.
