Economic empowerment for vulnerable women

Objectives:
The project aims to improve the quality of life of 700 HIV–infected women and their families through the provision of sustainable livelihoods and educational support. This entails providing the beneficiaries with the knowledge and skills to initiate an income-generating activity, and training in improved agricultural methods and nutrition, with 100 of the most vulnerable women being provided with seeds to set-up home gardens. Educational support will be provided over two years to one or two of the school-going children in each household, as the women develop their income, to cover school costs from the third year. Nurture Africa Uganda will also ensure all the women are educated in childcare and infant feeding procedures. All identified malnourished children will receive nutritional supplements.

 

The NGO:
Nurture Africa is a Ugandan NGO founded in 2003. Its mission is to promote the personal development (physical, mental and emotional) of orphans and vulnerable children and their
parents/guardians, affected by AIDS in Uganda.
