TRIVANI PROJECT – UNIQUE AND DYNAMIC!

February 3, 2010 at 3:51 am 3 comments

Jane Agolo of our Uganda Trivani team has written to share information about Trivani’s work in Kaberamaido, a village in rural Uganda.  Trivani has become involved with several widows groups in Kaberamaido.  Through micro-finance loan opportunities the widows are not only able to provide for their families’ physical well-being, but they also gain much-needed independence and dignity.  In addition, Trivani continues to support students in primary schools throughout the Kaberamaido District with Stay Alive, a program that focuses on helping children stay HIV and AIDS free.

Here is Jane’s description of these two on-going, community enriching projects.

Trivani project is one of its kind to exist in Kaberamaido, which has drawn attention of everybody. The way it operates leads to planning for the future – especially those who have lost hope in life – the widows, orphans, disabled , the needy, HIV +, the aged; thus fighting poverty in Kaberamaido.

The Widows Program

 The widows get micro finance loans for various businesses and pay back without any interest. They make beads for sale (see photo below); they are also involved in tailoring, bakery and farming, which has made widows to have a voice in the community. In African culture women are regarded as properties and rejected in the society.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stay Alive Program

This is an educational program on HIV/AIDS prevention, which involves children, teachers and parents. The aim is to involve the family to fight AIDS/HIV. It takes a unique approach to fight AIDS/HIV – promoting  choice, love, happiness, hope, self respect and freedom.  The program has been in four pilot schools and it is currently extending to nineteen other schools.

    I was able to buy some of your beads late last year, they are absolutely beautiful!! I wear them to all the time especially to Trivani events and people always comment on how gorgeous they are and want to know where to buy them.
    When I explain where they come from and how just by purchasing such wonderful beads you can support the women who make them in Uganda that is powerful. xxxx
