Did you know...

1,000,000 people in Uganda are blind and 585,000 are deaf. 25% of them are children.

How you can help

In Kayunga District in Uganda, we provide yarn, fabric and thread to 'Youth and Persons with Disability Integrated development Association' school so the children can make items to sell to support themselves. We will provide enough yarn for the school for a year of knitting these items. It takes 4-6 balls of yarn to make one sweater. This will help reduce their expenses and increase their profit.
