Dear Friends of African Women Rising, I have been feeling a bit stuck lately. In…
Our work in Northern Uganda continues to expand and create life changing opportunities.
Some key highlights from 2018:
- We currently provide support to more than 15,000 women and men, reaching close to 90,000 children (a 35% increase from 2017).
- A record number of students in the Girls Education program completing primary school.
- 5,000 refugees from South Sudan have participated in the Permagarden program, with many producing food within 2-3 weeks of planting a garden.
- 80% of women in our micro-finance program double their income (or more) within a year.
We hope you will continue to support our work in 2019.
Wishing you a Happy New Year,
Linda and the whole AWR team
