The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Our mission is to protect, support and empower the most vulnerable populations in Uganda.
Foundation Mamawatoto is an independent, non-profit organization created in 2007 by a group of African women living in The Netherlands. Our dream is to live in a world where the poor and vulnerable are no longer marginalized nor abused, but are able to participate in the realization of lasting positive changes for themselves, and the communities they live in.
We focus on poor and disadvantaged populations, often living in the most rural and forgotten communities, to give them a chance to be heard, fight poverty, discrimination and injustice. Instead of telling people what to do, we let them tell us what they need, and help them achieve their goals. And that is what makes Mamawatoto different. We enable people to create their own opportunities.
