FAMILY TO FAMILY is turning 5!

Let's Celebrate!

15-030 Child & mother Jan 2020

We launched our unique sponsorship program called Family to Family at this very event in April of 2015. Generous donors and supporters like you were partnered with families in Uganda with the goal of improving the education, health and well-being of the entire family. Over the past 5 years, this wonderful program has evolved and grown; we are thrilled to be seeing many of the results we had hoped for.

There are now 85 Ugandan families who are participating. Help us increase that number of sponsored families to 100!


We envision people in our partner communities in rural Uganda living healthy lives with dignity and hope. Funds raised at this event will toward sponsorship of students and their families, as well as general program that support Give Us Wings' mission: To encourage, support and partner with people living in extreme poverty in Uganda as they transform their lives through greater access to quality health care, education and economic opportunities.


Thank you to The Lab Pilot Facility and Taproom for being an Event Sponsor again this year!
