Project /activities:
The Education and Training Program
This project provides direct sponsorship to orphaned and needy children by giving them school fees and scholastic Materials, School Uniforms and Medical Care. Even mentoring them to become hopeful citizens that will impact their communities with positive changes.
Adult education program/English teaching
Here we teach both abused women and youths who have dropped out of school how to read and write since all of them have never gone to school at our Centre from Monday to Friday, from 10am to 11am.
SOA has a wide plan of introducing adult education to rural communities, like in Bugomba village such that illiterate people can learn how to read and speak English and we minimize the problem of language barrier among abused women, children and youths drop outs in villages.
Each orphaned child needs $15 to 20 to go to school and learn how to read and write in a public school per a term, public primary schools like Lugazi west and east, st Kizito, Bugomba P/S, Nakawungu P/S
Agricultural Development and poultry
This is an initiative that has been developed in Bugomba village and the goal is to provide food to abused women and children as well as create a demonstration garden to the local community where they can come and learn better agriculture and poultry skills and practices in both crops and animal husbandry.
The goal here is to have a sustainable source of food for the children and abused women. Save Omwana Africa organization hopes to increase food production from subsistence farming to extensive farming using machinery. With high production of food, we shall be able to feed the women and children at school and to also sell off some so that we can have a sustainable source of income to them.
Widows and Women Empowerment Programs
This is a program aimed at empowering abused women with skills that can help them sustain themselves and their children. Women are trained in various skills like farming and poultry, Art and crafts, these crafts are made from palm leaves, Beads and necklaces, bracelets in our continent Africa,80% for the money gotten from craft sales goes on food and children school fees.
Women and Children are the most hit group by Malaria and HIV/AIDS Diseases. Many of them become widows at a very young age and the biggest numbers of them do not have any source of income which can help them to obtain some medication with this death can be the best solution to them in Uganda most of the abused women are young mothers with children to look after. Therefore, when they die, they leave children without help, this calls Save Omwana Africa organization to take over them.
Youth and Empowerment Programs
In this program, SOA has gone out the young people in schools to inspire them to become hopeful to make good decisions that will impact their lives and communities. This program aims at closing the gap between the rich and the poor to become role models in their communities. SOA organizes seminar to monitor and empower the young people, in this we train and encourage them with skills. These young men and women going throughtraining’s, it helps them to be able to do something economical with their lives. These training programs include; adult education, Hairdressing, craft making,bricklaying, music dance and drama, art moto washing, coffee making, farming, sports, are taught in order that many villagers gain skills and be able to start their own small businesses. We have seen many of our young peoples’ lives being transformed by these training programs.
Housing Development for the homeless children, Elderly Women and abused women
In partnership with both local and international volunteers [student groups, mission groups and local organization] SOA, organization reaches out to the rural villages to build houses to these, homeless children, widowed mothers and grandmothers (elderly and needy) with descent housing structures.
The goal is to have need families to get descent and secure house’s so that the children can grow in a good atmosphere. To help us do this, a 2 bedroom goes for an estimate of $ 4000 to 8000 including land and building. We appreciate groups that can come mainly to build a house. With support from our local youths from under programs and resources available, this house can be built in a space of three to five weeks.
The activities have no specific staff attached, therefore tend to delay
Funds allocated are not enough to cause impact
Issues to put much consideration.
Poverty alleviation is a big issue that SOA must put emphasis on t if any impact is to be realized on ground to improve on the standards of living of our members.
SOAis grateful for the committed Board and Staff members for the continued support that has enabled SOA to register growth day by day.
There are several reasons why we do need international volunteers and these are as follows.
Volunteering is very different because you will spend a significant amount of time in one place and you will be working on daily basis with the local people. This provides an invaluable opportunity to learn different cultures, develop and understanding of the issues facing most communities and develop a sense of global citizens. Volunteers also get a chance to learn other peoples culture because of the nature of our country which has a good number of different cultures.
Potential volunteers are a precious resource in funding minor projects. in this they can help in investing in small projects like cabbage growing with the local people in which they can obtain income to improve on their lives.
Volunteers with projects help in raising up the community and SOA, today!There are so many possibilities and opportunities in which you can help now. Let’s begin by spreading hope in one another. We can accomplish this goal by combining research skills and knowledge of our communities.
We are searching for volunteers who can help us find prospective skills from our people to re build our communities.
At the local level, people want to see efficiency, effectiveness and accountability in their republic service delivery. Volunteerism can promote inclusive participation of citizens in local development cycles and this has extensive experiences in mobilizing community members through voluntary actions and promoting access to basic services like Primary healthcare and HIV/AIDS: In many countries, more and more children under five years are dying than ever before due to malnutrition and disease. The HIV/AIDS epidemic remains one of the biggest threats to sub Saharan Africa .and malaria kills more than one million people, mostly children, every year Primary health care services provided by volunteers range from child to material health care to nutrition, reproductive health, reproductive health, health education includingHIV/AIDS awareness and sanitation. Volunteer health workers enabled by volunteers can also make a big difference by helping communities gain access to healthcare, and by educating people about preventing infections.
One of the better known benefits of volunteering is the impact on the community. Unpaid volunteers are often glue that holds a community together. Volunteering allows you to connect your community and make it a better place, However, volunteering is a two-way street, and it can benefit you and your family as much as the cause you choose to help. Dedicating your time as a volunteer helps a community to make new friends, expands their network, and boost social skills
With all those reasons, we will be very grateful if our appeal is being put into consideration
