Soroptimists inspire action and create opportunities to transform the lives of women and girls through international partnerships. We are looking forward to working with them to change the lives of young women in Uganda. They are proud to sponsor two young women: Charity and Prossy.
Charity is the third child in her family. All the children have only finished primary school as the parents are too poor to allow them to go to secondary school. At the moment Charity is staying at home with her parents trying to survive by growing vegetables in a small garden next to their house. Without some training Charity has no chance of breaking out of this poverty cycle she was born into.
Prossy started secondary school when some of her family managed to scrape together the money for her school fees. She was unable to finish her final exams though, because there was no money for the exam entrance fees and she subsequently had to drop out. She is currently living with her parents growing vegetables in a small garden
