PROBLEM STATEMENTThere is a worrying picture of food insecurity in Kasese district. According to Kasese district, production and marketing department annual report(2016),it has been identified that 54.6 of households experience food shortage during one or more season and that, more alarmingly,8.3 of households are food insecure during all four seasons. While most suffer difficulties satisfying their food needs at least once during the day, consumption of meals per day is on sliding scale with extremely poor and severely deprived households consuming only 2.0 meals per day on average.84 o f households do not have sufficient food reserves for the next 2-3 months. There is a low nutrition value in the daily meals consumed in majority of households in Kanyangeya parish (Kanyangeya United Couples Association) Baseline survey ,2018.The consumption of nutrition high foods is low with meat or fish being consumed on average 1.9 times per week Kanyangeya United Couples Association Baseline survey,2017. According to the recent study conducted by FURA November,2014, indicted that Nyamwamba sub-county is among the most affected sub-county having the highest number of children with malnutrition in Kasese district. Equally responses from village health team and local council leaders during the baseline survey conducted by Kanyangeya United Couples Association in 2015,clearly point out that in spite of the efforts undertaken by local leaders and self-help organization in Nyamwamba sub-county to address the above issues, there is still very limited awareness on the benefits of better nutrition practices pointing poultry keeping, kitchen gardening practices and health education among families in Kasese . Thus rendering pregnant mothers, children and their family members susceptible to diseases related nutritional deficiencies in their daily family meals or diets. According to Nyamwamba HC III Anuual performance report, 2015, the number of pregnant mothers currently receiving antenatal and postnatal care and children with poor feeding in Nyamwamba sub-county is at 34. As such, if some nutritional concerns of children and pregnant mothers are not addressed in the households in Nyamwamba sub-county and most parts of Kasese district .like it is stated that because of Poverty, they cant get money to buy other nourishing foods like meat, also Lack of awareness that-Eating mainly starches which are good foods are known for building the body. Many people grow protein foods but because they dont know the value they end up selling them and starve their body, Poor family planning with Interval between one child after the other is short and because this child will be removed or stopped from breastfeeding and taken up by the grandparents for care because they are pregnant. Also having many children which the family cannot afford to maintain or cater for, Beliefs which may be cultural or religious where some people are not allowed to eat certain types of food and which is protein in nature for example chicken, eggs, grasshoppers, fish etc, Diseases of the mother and the child play an important role in causing malnutrition for example. T.B, Cancer, Anemia etc, Drought ,Many crops in Uganda are destroyed by sunshine and this has lead to the shortage of food. Region Insecurity. thats why Kanyangeya United Couples Association thought of training on nutrition and the relevant methods of income generation. So we need your help

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 effortsI 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 youLooking forward to your positive feedback

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
