Success Story: Widow in the Slums of Kampala


Another one of our success stories involves a widow and her two sons who live in the slums of Kampala, Uganda.  Prior to WEEPs putting her into business, she and her family lived every day wondering where their next meal would come from.  Adding to her daily challenge of existence was that one of her sons had special needs; however, there was no one to meet his need. Her other son had frequent medical problems due to poor nutrition.

WEEPs has been involved with this family for two years.  As a result, not only is this widow able to feed her children, she can afford the cost of the tuition for her children to attend school as well. $75 USD put this widow in business and now there is hope for her and her family to come out of poverty!  Even in the last year they have moved to a better home.
