1. Nalongo Cecilia Mukabayinda
Nalongo Cecilia Mukabayinda aged 83 years is a poor old widow who had lost all her children mostly to the HIV/AIDS epidemic and the responsibility of taking care of her 9 grandchildren rests entirely upon her. She is weak and less productive leaving her hopeless and worried about the future of her grandchildren. They were staying in a wooden one-roomed leaking house which exposed their lives to a lot of health and safety risks.
We identified her and through the support from our donors, we built her a two-bedroomed self-contained house with a fully installed solar system for lighting.
This changed her life and that of her Grandchildren. Her story still echoes across many villages and has given others in her situation hope that one day, they too shall have a better life.
The house has empowered her, improved on her level of self-esteem and confidence as well as that of her Grandchildren.
The beautiful smile on her face summarises it all; Hope has been restored in her life and her family’s.
