Change THEIR STORY
The year’s Change Their Story campaign is focused on providing opportunities for the youth and families in Ogoloi, Bukedea and Ongongoja to move toward their end goal of being self-sufficient. The people in these communities are excited to work hard and are so thrilled with the progress they have made over the last few years and we want to empower them with even more opportunities to provide for themselves!
This year we are focused on the following initiatives that will empower and provide dignity to the families in our program:
The community of Ogoloi will grow tangerines and other sweet citrus fruits and sell them to a local fruit factory on a large scale. This project will benefit 100 students, 60 parents and 40 other community members and fill a market need in their community.
Total Goal: $11,000
This project will boost income at a household level giving families the opportunity to provide for themselves. Vulnerable families in Bukedea will be given 10 chicks. Households will make money from selling organic manure, eggs and meat. It will also improve the health of children by providing them with nutritious eggs.
Total Goal: $11,000
As more of the children in our program get older and advance in their education, the cost of their schooling increases. When children in Uganda enter high school, they need to go to boarding school in order to get a quality education. These funds will provide better schooling opportunities to help students in Ongongoja succeed and reach their education and career goals. Due to COVID shutdowns, youth are behind in education. We want to empower them to continue to go to school and keep their dreams of success alive!
Total Goal: $5,500
APIARY EXPANSION FUND
This project is to expand the apiary income-generating project that was started in 2022. Funds will be used to purchase land, and secure the apiary project with a fence and a guard from thieves and wild animals. Within this land, residents will also grow sunflowers and cassava to provide income for the community and nectar for the bees.
Total Goal: $9,500
OF THE WAY TO OUR GOAL OF $37,000
Our goal is to raise $37,000 to fund these projects which will enhance sustainable economic practices and empower the children and their guardians to attain self-sufficiency.
