STRATEGY

The Church of God in Uganda and Congo recognize a need to empower women with additional ways to support their homes and families. At the Arise Conference with Congo and Uganda Women’s Leaders, this multi-faceted project was created. There are six areas of sustainability that the Church of God in Congo and Uganda desire to engage:
1. Uganda Animal Sustainability
2. Uganda Jjajja Houses
3. Congo Sewing Centers
4. Uganda Sewing Centers
5. Agricultural Project Congo
6. Agricultural Project Uganda

Below you can find more information about each of these areas and the financial need to make them happen!

UGANDA ANIMAL SUSTAINABILITY

Women in Uganda struggle to find jobs or opportunities for income to support their families. In many village settings, women lack the social status to change their families living situation. The Animal Sustainability Project gives women an opportunity to create a sustainable living through small animal care.

Cost

The cost per animal is Cow: $325, Goat: $70, Chicken: $15, Pig: $30, Turkey: $35, Duck: $30.

UGANDA JJAJJA HOUSE

Women, and especially grandmothers, are becoming the caretakers for children. Sometimes this is precipitated by the death of parents due to HIV/AIDS and in other cases it is for other reasons. Jjajja means “grandparent” and these small two-room houses help grandparents in Uganda provide for their families while giving them needed protection and security in a social system that does not protect them.

Cost

$4200-6000 per house, depending on specifics.

CONGO SEWING CENTER

This project would empower women with technical skills that would enable them to have a job to assist in helping the family with clothes in addition to providing opportunities for income generation. This project includes building a permanent sewing center and up to 10 sewing machines.

Cost

$10,000 per sewing center.
