Our largest enterprise is the development of about 100 acres of communal land in northern Uganda. The land is naturally a combination of jungle and heavy brush and hand-clearing is quite the laborious task. It is being hand-cleared and planted with crops of corn, beans, ground-nuts (peanuts), and pine trees to name a few. Started in 2010, this project provides labor and food for the surrounding villagers and became self-sustaining in 2015. 94 women are currently involved in this project and yet only 1/4 of the land has been cleared. Your donation will help with the further clearing and preparation of the land for more women and widows to not only provide sustaining crops but crops for market.
Please fill out the Contact Form on the Get Involved page to let us know if you are interested in joining a team. Doctors, Nurses, Pastors, Accountants, Students, and Homemakers - all are welcome!
As you can imagine, it takes a significant amount of funds to provide the services.
Any donation is greatly appreciated and fully tax-deductible.
We are a 501(c)3 Tax-exempt Organization.

2017 UPDATE: Many litters of piglets have been produced and distributed to the women! 42 women are now benefiting from this project.
Started in December 2013 the women's Piggery for widows in northern Uganda is already producing healthy piglets and income. Eventually, about 60+ widows will benefit from this project. The local government/clan has even provided the women with land for them to grow feed crops for the pigs.
Other women sewing projects are in need of start-up funds. Please contact us if you are specifically interested in assisting these women.
Started in 2012 these women who live on the northwestern slopes of Mt. Elgon are highly motivated to learn a trade and have their own business. Several women have already completed their training and have begun to train other women. They became self-sustaining in 2014.
