Uganda Projects 2019

In November 2019, our group will be traveling to Uganda to experience our many women’s empowerment projects. As is always the case with Global LifeVision, our projects each year differ a little depending upon the need of the village or areas in which we are teaching.

Some of the projects you can always count on us to promote are our “Cows for Widows” and “Gratitude Goats.” Below is a short video explaining how the simple donation of a goat ($50), can put a child in school for one year.

Finding CLEAN water is a constant struggle in Uganda. Water is everywhere as the landscape is covered in vegetation and it rains often. But if you want clean water, you must be the first to wake in the morning to dip your bucket into the catch pond. They share the pond with local livestock and wildlife, as well as all the neighboring families.

Each year we try and bring a source of clean water to a village in Uganda, and this year is no different.

Adopt a Village is Global LifeVision’s signature project, and is everyone’s favorite day on the expedition. In the past years we have donated school desks, provided training and education on the use of sewing machines, braiding hair, making jewelry, and building composite notebooks. Each and every one of these projects is chosen and overseen by our Ugandan LifeVision team. They do an outstanding job. The purpose of these projects is to empower the women, so they have money to provide for themselves as well as to put their children in school.

We also take the opportunity to travel with our Ugandan coaches and train Ideal LifeVision, Days for Girls, and Standing with Boys at a few schools in Kampala and Mbale. It is incredible to see the Ugandan team in their element, and we generally sit back in awe and let them preach their craft.

They don’t have “health” classes in Africa as they do here in the United States, so a large part of our training in the local schools involves the Days for Girls program and teaching the African girls about hygiene, pregnancy prevention, menstrual cycles, and providing them with kits to keep them in school. These DFG kits, if used properly, can last up to 3 years. Without these kits, the women and girls are forced to use means such as garbage, palm tree or banana tree fibers, or a number of other uncomfortable and unsanitary means. Much of the time the girls stay home from school, and too often they are forced to drop out. This is a preventable situation, and why Global LifeVision chooses to align with DFG to provide these kits to as many girls as possible.
