Day 6 - Dress a Girl (& Boy) Around the World

We had such a good day handing out lots of dresses and shorts made for us by many people all over the UK. We received many dresses from the charity, Dress a Girl Around the World UKThe Blue Room, an art and craft shop in Nailsea (near Bristol), and many individuals who are passionate about both tailoring and seeing smiles on the faces of those less fortunate around the world. 

A couple of pictures I particularly like are, the girl holding tight her new dress and the class praying, being thankful for those who have made and given each of them a new dress or pair of shorts.

We really want to say thank you to all those who have contributed and made dresses. We have given out more dresses and shorts to those in Katanga but we aren't able to share them because of child protection reasons. We are saving some of the clothes to give out over Christmas to many more children throughout the community. 

Below are just a few pictures of the women in our Livelihoods program, who share a passion for tailoring.

If you would like to find out how you can support these families in Katanga Slum, Uganda further then fill out the form below and we will be sure to get back to you with some ideas.

Hope for Life Breakfast

Come join us for breakfast, while we hear from our guest Nkurunziza Francis (Co-founder & Director of Hope for Life Katanga) as well as the rest of the Hope for Life team from the UK.

Francis will share a little about his background growing up in Uganda, before talking about the exciting work we are currently doing in Katanga (& beyond?). Francis, Megan and Mark will be sharing stories, pictures and videos throughout the morning.

There will be a time for Q&A at the end too, all while you enjoy a cup of coffee, croissant and perhaps a Ugandan chapati.

There will be a crafts area in the hall, as well as lots of outside green space if the children (or adults) want to run about.

Please register that you are coming to the breakfast by ‘purchasing’ free tickets from our event page.

We would love to see you there.
