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.

Factors

HIV/AIDS is the principle underlying factor for a number of diseases including TB, meningitis, and several other opportunistic infections. Consequently, HIV/AIDS has increased the demand for health care and drugs, exerting immense pressure on scarce resources, which has in turn, reduced accessibility of health care for everyone, but hurt the poor the most.

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
