When you sponsor a partner mom in Uganda, you help her and her family escape poverty, you provide a promising future for her children, you grow her community’s economy, and you reduce the gender gap she struggles against.
When you sponsor a WWK member for $42/month, you know that you are making a significant difference in breaking the cycle of generational poverty.
Join With Women Kisoboka and with the sponsorship of others you will help a mother be the change in the lives of her children. You can witness that change and grow in your understanding of a young mother’s life who strives against lives in poverty.
1. You sign up for a partner sponsorship.
2. If you wish, we can put you in touch with your partner mom in Uganda by phone or email.
3. Our goal is for sponsors to be engaged for 5 years so you can see your WWK partner mom transition from distress to success as they change themselves, their family and their community.
