Help a mum start a business and rebuild the life of her family

Help a mum start a business and rebuild the life of her family


When you buy this gift for £85 we will send you a colourful card (with an envelope) for you to add your own message and send to your chosen friend or loved one.

Your gift will help a mum or guardian in the slums of Kampala start a business so she can regain control of her life and take better care of her children.

Sometimes life in the slums have a way of keeping you down - your parents pass away and you find yourself the sole provider for your siblings; you're struck down by illness; floods wash away your home leaving you destitute and struggling to feed your family.

This is what happened to Fatuma's family (Fatuma is pictured here with her daughter Winnie), when heavy rains caused open drains to swell.

Water washed through their home, bringing down the walls narrowly missing the children as they slept.

The filthy water washed away their few possessions and contaminated everything else. They were left with nothing and nowhere to go.

This gift will allow us to offer small loans and skills training to mums like Fatuma. Giving them a helping hand to start their business and regain control over their lives.

We'll listen to their business plan and the scale of the loan will depend on the business idea, for example, it would take just £85 for Fatuma to buy her own sewing machine and all the materials she needs to get her own tailoring business started.
