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.

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

Respected President, Greetings from Mission to the Nations - a Non Governmental Organization - Registered Christian Charity in India. Present activities: Rehabilitation to the women in Depressed, Abused, Women Empowerment Training Programs, Sharing the word of God with the unreached millions, Primary Health Care, Girl Child Education & Protection, ( we have 15 Free schools operating ) Income Generation opportunities, Poverty Relief, End child marriages, Home for the Orphans, Clean water ( Bore wells ) to impact the world by youth inspiration. In my region, there are many women who do not have any hope and depressed in their life due to their backwardness. Many of the women and children are in Slavery. Due to lack of education, the women are not getting any kind of jobs to do. Exploitation of the women is so high. Many women were trapped in to the hands of immoral people and those women are finally found in red light areas of Metro Cities In India. The fruits of the government programs are really not reaching to most of the people. Child Slavery is also high. So, we have started a mission to help the women and girl children with self employment training programs and to make them to stand on their own with dignity. Word of God and Teaching on different Skills like Cutting and tailoring, Pot painting, embroidery, envelop making, making of infinite scarf, making of cookies like Biscuits, Chocolates and Indian traditional sweet cakes, Hair Cutting Training etc. Each year, we want to help 200 women by setting up a Training center in the rural areas where these 200 women can take training on the above said Skills. In this connection, we request you for your helping hands to set up a training Center for 200 girls and to give 9 months training. So that women can start New Life. In this connection, we apply to you for a grant of 30,000 US dollars to help 200 poor women with 9 months training program. We welcome you to come to our organization to see what we are doing for the needy in the Women community. We welcome volunteers. I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you very much. Kind regards to you, Pastor. Y. Paparao
