Here is an example of just how much $5USD can help. Huge difference. No cost.

Provides 2% of funds needed for 1 woman's remaining share to buy the land.

You can help very poor women (they used to live on less than $1 per day) who are working on income-generation projects with us, to buy land so they can build their own homes and move out of the slums forever. We are very close to having the funds needed to make the final land payment which is needed by the end of December. Please help us reach our goal. Donations are urgently needed as well as help selling a special holiday "Ornament of Hope" as shown on our website. Our Ugandan women crafted this ornament using paper beads that they made from rolled paper.

Each Ugandan woman needs 50 supporters to give $5 each (or 25 to give $10 each, 10 to give $25 each etc.) to finish her remaining land purchase share amount.

We take volunteers with us to Uganda 2 times each year during "dry season", generally Jan/Feb and then again in June/July. There are many volunteering opportunities if you would like to get involved when you visit the project which is in Jinja Uganda. We especially need those with construction/engineering/architectural experience. The women always appreciate help in furthering their business skills, and in enhancing their artistic/design skills. Contact Carol at 303/683-8450 or [email protected] to learn more. It is possible to combine assisting our project and visitng a nearby park such as Murchison Falls National Park.

What To Bring

We can use help with specific types of school supplies, vitamins and JuicePlus powder for our HIV/Aids sub-group, and various artistic type supplies. You can also see our current month's "Wish List" on our website.
