Albino's Mum has now a new income source!

Albino's Mum, one of our children in the Sponsorship Programme supported by UPG Portugal, has a stand where she sells various products in order to guarantee financial support for her family and to ensure Albino and his siblings’ well-being and education.

The Income Generation programme is focused on family and small-scale activities, at household or community level, and provides self-sufficiency opportunities and the development of small industry, agriculture or local trade so as to boost the local economy and generate long term economic sustainability in communities in need. Albino's Mum is an example of strength, determination, hard work and she is contributing to women empowerment levels in Mozambique.

Strenght and Will !

Edson Agostinho Bila, from S. Vicente de Paulo, is one of our little boys, that rides a wheelchair.
In June he broke his leg and was for a few months unable to move. Today we woke up with the good news that "our" Edson got back to school
He still has the 3rd period to get back the time lost.
With strenght and will everything is possible.
Edson is a lesson for all of us, a lesson to all his colleagues and friends !

Join us in the Go Back to School Campaign! In 20 days we fundraised £1.185 - 36% of our final goal which is to fundraise to cover all the rebuilding costs of St Catarina School in Chongoene - £3.350.
We still have  64% of our way left to achieve our big goal! Did you know that with £17 you are contributing with 1 window? And that with £26 you are helping with 1 bucket of paint? Or that with only
£1 you are helping with 1 lamp?
