BENEFITING: INTERNATIONAL MOTHER EARTH FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: May 10, 2015
International Mother Earth Foundation (501c3 non profit) will be visiting a small village group in Agwata, in Northern Uganda to work on the construction of a nursery school and an empowerment program for the school children and/or local women of the community.
This community is still in the process of being re-settled after the 20 -year old war with the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) which ended in late 2008. The tragic reality of the war was that all the original homes, schools, clinics and churches that might have been in the communities before the war, were erased by either the war itself or the neglect of 20 years when the village people were forced to live in refugee camps.
As International Mother Earth Foundation we are helping these communities rebuild, focusing on bringing back the best of the Acholi culture. This requires sensitivity on all sides in looking at how each community wants to re-create itself.
"Seeking to provide humanitarian aid and cultural global awareness while enabling ourselves to empower others."
