The most marginalised and wounded people in Africa are women.
The goal is to restore dignity to these women in the following ways:
|1.||By improving their quality of life, assisting them with basic necessities such as food, clothing, shelter and medical care|
|2.||Providing comprehensive HIV/AIDS care including counselling and psychosocial support|
|3.||Spiritual and moral discipleship|
|4.||Empowering and equipping them with vocational skills|
|5.||Setting them up with self sustainable income generating projects using micro-finance loans|
Some of these women have been brutally tortured – both mentally and physically. Lips, ears, noses and even genital parts severed from their bodies. The wounds and scars are a constant reminder of their past and they’re also part of the reason for the harsh rejection they receive from their community and family.
Watoto provides opportunities for those who have been disfigured to undergo reconstructive surgery. The surgeries contribute to the restoration, not only of their essential physical features, but more importantly to their dignity and livelihood.
Living Hope also discovered that there are many girls in northern Uganda that are dropping out of school due to lack of sanitary towels.
