After years of our non-profit working with street children and sexually exploited women in the slums of Kampala, Transformed for Life continually saw the same push-factors for children and teens running from their biological families to the streets: poverty, trauma, domestic violence, divorce and the lack of an education. We were working with vulnerable people who had been hurt in their homes and then traumatised further by the extreme abuse, violence and exploitation of the streets. Three years ago we decided to shift our focus from an emergency response of street children to prevention of street children coming to the streets in the first place, we decided to do that through the people that love them more than anyone else- their mothers. We moved our family and ministry to the village in Western Uganda where we now run a weekly women's empowerment program for 600 women. These women are caring for over 3,000 children.
Our focus areas include economic empowerment, medical care, trauma, conservation, and improved agricultural techniques.
Transformed for Life is also continuing to support former street children and vulnerable children to successfully stay at home with their families and to receive an education.
Transformed for Life also belives that conservation of the beautiful world around us is of utmost importance. Transformed for Life has distributed moringa and mango seedlings to women in our community. We have also planted over 8,400 indigenous trees on our land in addition to sustainable timber in the form of pine trees.
