Education is the key to a good life. It gives one hope that, after completing the recommended phase, one will live a good life and afford the basic needs in life.
An orphaned child is usually an already traumatized child, psychologically due to the loss of parents and needs to be handled with care. One way of helping this child to live for a better normal life, is by first ensuring he gets the basic things like food, shelter, clothing then followed by the vital education. When this child is given education, he feels secure and aims at improving his life
But no matter what, education is the key that allows people to move up in the world, seek jobs and ultimately succeed fully in life. Education is very important and no one should be deprived of it. Whether an orphan or any other person in life.
We want to put a smile on the faces of these orphans and give them hope of a better future. We cater for the education of these orphaned children and we hope to assist more and more in accessing education in future.
Single Mothers Support
The organization carried out a baseline survey and identified a general problem in a certain group of people (single mothers) who are under going through life pain and torture due to uncertainties like death ,calamities and domestic violence hence attacking the problem with a solution of entrepreneurship and improved livelihood.
Single mothers juggle many roles to provide and care for their children, often while struggling with complex issues. Facing these challenges, many single mothers are highly resilient, however others fall through the cracks. Raisethemupfoundation can foster resilience by providing a range of supports; for single mother families these include educating their children, introducing hand work projects such as basket weaving, piggery rearing, poultry rearing, hair dressing, tailoring, flexible employment and community support.
Single mothers want jobs that enable them to still look after their children and access affordable childcare for them. Working locally also helps families connect with their community.
Single mothers who call our support line, access our website and otherwise engage with us are grappling with an intersecting range of issues, most frequently including financial hardship and the related issues of housing affordability, lack of flexible and secure work, unaffordable or inaccessible childcare, the rising costs of public education, and the impacts of health, mental health and caring responsibilities. More than half our callers are also dealing with the ongoing repercussions of family violence, including financial abuse.
The above girl is called Nakato Zaina aged 14 years at the moment. We found Nakato taking care of her old blind grand father. Talking to Nakato, she says she was in school but due to lack of school fees, she ended dropping out. Her grand father was trying to get her married at an early age because he couldn’t afford taking care of her. This girl’s future is at risk if she doesn’t get support to get her out of the current situation. You can support her in different ways such as contributing on her school fees, scholastic materials, donating basic needs such as food, clothes mattresses, sanitary items.
His name is called Julius and he stays with his mother and unfortunately, he is deaf. At his age, he is unable to communicate and worst of it , he has never got a chance to go to learn sign language so that he can interact with others. Julius finds it challenging for him to interact and at the same time controlling his emotions when not understood. So we think if at all he gets to learn sign language, we hope his life could change. Please support him with what you have by donating for this cause.
