3. In this same manner they have been counseled in groups, we have done individual counseling, we have had 3 career guidance sessions, we provided sexual reproductive lessons to 50 students.
4. We held one successful beneficiary meeting during the month of October, this acted as a follow up, monitoring and support at the same time. After one full year from since when the pandemic started, we had a big distance between us and the families that we serve due to the lockdowns that were brought by the pandemic. However, on this day of the 23rd we had our families talk and express the challenges through the pandemic, we had fellowship and prayed together, we shared lunch which showed love and unity with our families.
5. During the month of October, we provided food to 15 starving families, we provided medical assistance by paying for hospital bills and buying medicines to our family which got burnt up in the fire in the month of April, restored their business bought for them some clothes, bought for them beddings and paid rent for them in the new house and provided food.
6. In December we rescued a teenage Mom with her baby and her whole family who was starving, sick and hopeless. Sylvia is still in the process of restoration, skills training and rehabilitation with her baby Martha, we have embarked on the plan to look for the house to settle, we are planning to train her in business with other in the month of February 2022.
7. We hosted Airtel telecom Uganda, on the 8th December we hosted this very big Network on that date after being nominated as one of the charities in the region to impact the community. They were 12 charities nominated and we ranked number 8, this Network donated to us 2 office chairs, 1 Embroidery sewing, 1 brand new singer type of ordinary sewing machine, 1 big two trays electric oven. These have enlarged our territory especially in skills training in the community for it is going boost the project so much through 2022.
8. We a hosted a Christmas party for the beneficiaries/families in December. This was a get together with all our Moms and their children, to feel happy after two years of distance due to the pandemic. We wanted to also celebrate together life and show our community that we are still together and we still love them despite it all.
