Nonprofit Celebrates 4 Years Going Strong!
It’s Wando’s birthday!!
That’s right! We said it.
It’s Wando International’s anniversary today!
We have been serving our communities for four years now and to be honest..we’re just getting started.
Our mission started back in 2013 when after taking several trips to extremely impoverished parts of Uganda, we saw how severe the needs were for both women and children living there.
Rather than sit back and just complain about these issues, we decided we were going to do something about it!
It began with the babies home where we rescued five children who were in extreme danger: physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
We took them into our home to love and care for them as our own.
Now that number has grown to 20 beautiful children and our blessings have been multiplying ever since!
Then the opportunity came for us to open the doors of a free primary school offered specifically to children living in the most vulnerable environment.
Marah primary school is centrally located in the Njeru slums where families are trying to survive day to day in extreme poverty.
By providing this school, Wando has gained access into the lives of this 3,000 person community.
Through ongoing outreaches, dedicated case mangers in the field, and spiritually lead service we have been able to make a positive impact in the lives of this Ugandan community.
Wando International has also now been able to partner with 60 women and enroll them into our vocational bead training program!
These mothers, grandmothers, and widows all learn the skills of how to roll beads, crafting them into beautiful pieces of jewelry, as well as business management and financial literacy.
Our mission is to empower these women so they can become self-sufficient and be able to provide for their families.
It’s been an AMAZING four years of continued service to those in need! We thank everyone who has helped us in our mission along the way.
We welcome you to join us on this journey!
