How you help us make a big impact in Uganda

In some countries, like Uganda, the extent of housing poverty calls for innovative ideas that can work on a big scale. This is where our microfinance programme comes in.

We promote the practice of incremental building – first the walls, then the roof, then the doors and windows etc. This keeps the loan size small and affordable, making it an ideal way of supporting people like Halima.

Halima had already completed the foundation of her future home before she contacted us for help. She had the know-how to build but needed some money for building materials.

“It was frustrating”, she remembers. “Having to pay rent and other costs, it was difficult to store up all I needed to finish the house.”

Today her house is complete, Halima says, “home makes you feel like you belong somewhere.”

If you’re not into partying or baking, you can still support the challenge by making a donation to our vital work.

Give today

Isn’t it wonderful to be able to give back to your community, even if it’s a small bit? Matt and I spent the morning volunteering at a Habitat for Humanity build, and every time we do things like this it’s always a humbling experience that also gives us renewed pride in our little community. There are so many ways and opportunities to get out there and volunteer your time, talents, and efforts to help your local community and I urge you all to get involved! It doesn’t take much just your willingness to help. Now that it is raining and turned into quite a chilly fall day we’re cozying in with a good snuggly blanket a movie and our hound. Speaking of cozy, how cozy does this family room in sweetshadylane look? I could definitely spend a rainy dreary day like today in it! 📸: sweetshadylane •
