Help educate children in developing countries
NATIONAL COMMUNITY OF WOMEN LIVING WITH HIV/AIDS (NACWOLA)
NACWOLA is an organisation run by and for the benefit of women affected by HIV/AIDS in Uganda. Established in 1992, it has now grown to a network of over 60,000 members providing fellowship, support, and hope.
Almost all these members are mothers who have, in many cases, lost their husbands. The impact of AIDS goes beyond those infected and includes many children who have lost parents. NACWOLA work with these orphans and vulnerable children and give them a forum for mutual support. <more details ...>
The Railway school is located in Nsambya on the outskirts of Kampala, Uganda. It’s a well established school providing a sound academic education for over 1,400 children between the ages of 6 and 16. Olivia, the Headmistress has initiated an innovative scheme whereby the older students can take vocational classes to acquire skills in tailoring, knitting, baking, craft making and mushroom growing.
Such skills often ensure that these young men and women can earn a living for themselves. Lessons for Life is helping Olivia and the other staff at Railway School to improve and to intensify their vocational training facilities such that more students can have access to this facility. <more details ...>
As well as funding specific projects, “Lessons for Life” is happy to help align sponsors with students where the sponsor may be more interested to help a specific student attend school. <more details ...>
