Millennium Fellowship Project: Withchristwecan
Withchristwecan is a project that targets the youth, mostly girl children, the women and the needy generally.
Targets the youth and girls through introducing reproductive health to them, counselling and guidance since many youth have mental issues and curiosity adulthood issues that need answers, hygiene issues, entrepreneurship skills that include mainly baking, tailoring, weaving, and others that may bring some income to them so as to survive mostly the girls that are prone to early marriages, leadership skills and others.
Targets the women through entrepreneurship skills that could help them earn something to facilitate their families as research has it that a woman earning some income in a home is not too prone to gender based violence as one doing nothing.
Targets the needy mostly people affected by the pandemic , children who can't afford tution and fees like me, I've been there and iam there so I know how it feels for one's studies to be at stake.
So, helping those children,.mostly the girls who are undermined in Uganda and somehow denied education, plus those who can't afford school and basic needs to enable them go to school and become elite without having to beg and hustle like I do.
Other needy include people affected by HIV AIDs, cancer , sickle cells and others who need some counseling and some support.to be able to go through what they are facing.
