Mission

Uzima In Our Hands is an IOW based Christian Charity supporting Uzima Orphan & Day Care Centre, which is located in the Samia district of Western Kenya. The Centre supports over 300 children aged 3-18 years to provide a basic education and two meals a day. Every child at Uzima has good reason to be there; many of them have lost one or both parents, often due to HIV/AIDS. They may also have HIV/AIDS themselves, Special Needs, health needs or live in abject poverty. Uzima's care means the extreme burden put on the families left to care for them is alleviated and the children and families have hope for a better future.

Additional Information

We are looking to raise money for an exciting micro financing programme, in partnership with Five Talents over a 3 year period. The long term aim of the project is to break the bonds of poverty in the area around Uzima, encouraging entrepreneurialism in the community. By enabling people to set up basic enterprises to generate their own income, they will be able to feed their own families and send their children to school. We need to raise £10k to run a training programme and fund one or more facilitators to run savings and business training groups. We would like to target businesses particularly, and our supporters, with a message about how entrepreneurship changes lives.
