Projects :

The projects that we implement are real projects involving real people. Our projects aim to help single parents overcome the challenges wrought upon them by poverty and HIVAIDS. Our projects include advocacy initiatives, income generation, HIVAIDS- awareness, prevention and care activities and community-led efforts to provide care and support for orphans and vulnerable children. Our practical projects help beneficiary single parents to improve their household incomes, raise their children successfully and escape from desperate conditions of poverty. These projects also help single parents to participate more fully in the lives of their communities and challenge the discrimination that often prevents them from advancing their rights and participating in local policy decision making processes.

Advocacy

Single parents in Uganda, like any other group of people are entitled to be in control of their own lives, but due to some negative stereotypes about single parents -especially women- that exist in some communities, single parents are at risk of having their ability to exercise choice and to represent their own interests limited. In these circumstances, SPAU seeks to ensure that single parents’ views and needs are heard, respected and acted upon.

Our advocacy activities include:

HIVAIDS

HIV/AIDS affects all strata of the population in Uganda and poses a serious threat to the socio-economic life and development of individuals and groups of people alike. Although much has been done to create awareness of HIV/AIDS in Uganda, promoting testing and facilitating care for people living with HIV, a lot still needs to be done to reduce HIV infection further and to mitigate the socio-economic impact of the epidemic at individual, household and community level.

By 2001, statistics from UNAIDS revealed that AIDS had killed one or both parents of 13.4 million children still under the age of 15. The ranks of these children will soon be swelled by millions of additional others who are living with sick and dying parents. This tragedy continues to worsen as AIDS continues to kill ever larger numbers of people.

By 2010, the total number of children orphaned by HIV/AIDS is expected to nearly double to 25 million. HIV/AIDS has killed more people in sub-Saharan Africa than anywhere else in the world, and the vast majority of orphans and vulnerable c

I appreciate the kind of work you are doing. Indeed service to humanity is the best way to serve God and to help the marginalised groups of people like single parents. May the Almighty bless all your efforts I am equally a single mother with a five year old son and I am a student of Law at Kampala International University currently in my fourth year. The father of my son has been paying my tuition from the beginning of my law course and taking care of us well but now he has got a new woman in his life and sent us packing out of his house. I kindly request for financial assistance from your organization to enable me complete my education because through my education I will be empowered and also be able to support my son through school Thank you Looking forward to your positive feedback
