In today’s Crisis caused by the Coronavirus Pandemic, the need for basic needs has hit hard our most Vulnerable Communities in Eastern Uganda, that’s why as Casey Foundation, we have embarked on a fundraising drive to aid 50 households of married young girls acquire fundamental business skills and a startup business as well and 50 young girls at a risk of becoming child brides and teenage mothers to acquire full complete skilling and training course as an empowerment tool. Having a startup business will enable these married young girls to earn a livelihood. This is the reason why we need campaign fundraiser to push the drive for fund to carry out this project.
We also seek ambassadors to help us spread the organisation mission and vision.
We are also seeking for a website developer to support in designing the website so we can share with public what we do.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
