SUSTAIN:lives

We believe in REAL, SUSTAINING, and POWERFUL solutions! Each one of these gifts has a self-sustaining element to it that will create massive change for a family. There are also a few other special gifts that will impact an individual in a real, tangible way.

I WANT TO STOP HUNGER.

what's the gift?

55 lbs. of beans and 55 lbs. of corn which is enough seeds to plant half an acre

why give it?

The cost of staple foods such as corn and beans has risen while their availability has decreased. The majority of families within the Project R12 community are eating 1 or 2 meals every few days. Seeds will allow a family to plant, till, and produce crops to not only feed themselves but also to reach out to others. Seeds are a major step for the average Ugandan family to become self-sustaining.

why give it?

By providing a healthy, full-grown cow to the Project R12 community, an immediate impact would be made in the lives of the people. The cow produces both milk and manure which can be sold at the local market. The cow can produce a minimum of $900 a year in milk while also producing an average of $100 a year in manure. The milk can also be used for feeding and cooking while the manure can also be used to fertilize the crops. The purchase of the cow will be reinvested in the local community because the cow will be purchased from a local Ugandan farmer and not an outside source. 

what's the gift?

1 full grown goat from a local farmer

1 year's supply of sanitary napkins for 1 girl that will help her stay healthy and in school

why give it?

Most families are hoping to start their own business, and one of the quickest and most cost-effective ways to help a family on the road to self-sustainment is to provide them with a healthy, full-grown goat. Goats breed very quickly, and within a few months, a family can have enough offspring to produce milk and meat which can be sold at the local market. The price of the goat will be reinvested in the local community as the goat will be purchased from a local Ugandan farmer and not an outside source. 

GIRL, YOU ARE AMAZING.

what's the gift?

1 year supply of sanitary supplies to a young girl  

why give it?

The majority of girls in Uganda have no access to sanitary supplies and are forced to use dirty rags, towels, or anything else they can find. During this time of the month, a girl will often miss school to avoid embarrassment which can result in up to 270 missed lessons a year and often expulsion from school because with so many absences, she cannot keep up with the rest of the class.

why give it?

Most children and even adults sleep on concrete floors, piles of straw, or the hard ground. They cannot afford a mattress, soft blanket, pillow, or sheets. Kids are prone to skin rashes and diseases from sleeping on the dirty floors and bug-infested straw. Providing a clean and comfortable means of sleeping will drastically improve their daily lives and help them maintain a healthy life.

FOOD  FOR THE SOUL.

what's the gift?

1 Bible in Logaundan or English

why give it?

There is little access to Bibles for Christians or anyone interested in learning about Jesus. Most Ugandans wait until Sunday to have the chance to possibly read the Bible (if their church has one) because they cannot afford one on their own.
