  • Description

    Description

    We are a non profit organization founded by Twin sisters. The organization is located along Entebbe road. Growing up in this we realised few children in our community were lucky to receive a good education like we did. As we grew, we got the passion to help those in need and soon after school we were able to find jobs that enabled us earn and support some children who were struggling with school fees and scholastic materials. We are glad that our family and friends were able to join us and the number of children to receive help increased. We were also able to introduce other projects like skills development among the youth like hair dressing, baking, knitting, making mats, baskets that they can sell and earn an income. This has enabled them to improve on their standards of living. We will be delighted to receive workawayers who are willing to share a blessing from these children, youth and the entire community.
