How We Help
Access to a health clinic means a young mother can have her baby immunized to prevent him or her from becoming ill, and that the occurrence of malaria drops 253% in one year. This success is due to the public health initiatives by clinic staff.
When girls thrive, a country thrives. Women are central to the health of families and communities. Each year of primary education that a girl receives lowers the rate of infant mortality and improves her earning capacity (up to 20%).
Entrepreneurship and Livelihoods Development
Our program is designed to help end poverty, improve nutrition and food security and promote sustainable agriculture. Ultimately, ELD is designed to promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth for our partners.
This unique program employs a holistic approach. Families enrolled in this program and living in deep poverty in Uganda are able to provide a stable, healthy environment for their children. The whole family has access to resources related to parenting, health care and business, and one child per family attends a private school. Together, all members of the family work to build a sustainable future.
