Transformed for Life is committed to serving vulnerable people throughout Uganda and providing them with the skills to empower them to have a better future. Here is an overview of some of our programs: Women’s Empowerment Program: Each week Transformed for Life holds a women’s empowerment program. Each week the women have a life skill and then share a meal together. Life skills include such topics as parenting, marriage, trauma, nutrition, improved agricultural techniques and money management. We have also trained on income generating activities and provided the start-up capital to begin them. Such activities include: fruit seedlings, pig and rabbit projects as well as tailoring and hair dressing workshops. Sponsorship of vulnerable children: Over the years TFL has come aside children from a variety of desperate situations including: street children, trafficked children, lost and abandoned children, children in conflict as well as children from child headed households. Through sponsorship, TFL cares for all of the need of a child by providing them with medical care, counselling as well as a great education and all of the academic materials that they need to excel. Community Development: Through medical camps, youth and children’s camps as well as sensitisation on different subjects such as healthcare, agriculture, trauma and marriage, TFL continues to work with our entire community to walk along side of them and to give them the tools to improve their quality of life. Early Education and Primary School: Through engaging in our community, Transformed for Life has recognised, and been requested by the local government and community to begin an early education and primary school for children in our community. It is our goal to build a beautiful school where children can receive an excellent education that fully supports them to be the best person that they can be in their future! We desire to continue raising up the future leaders of Uganda.
Conservation: Transformed for Life values the environment and puts great emphasis on educating our community on the value of trees, wildlife, and why we should preserve this precious earth that we have been given. TFL continues to plant trees in our community as well as to distribute them to the families regularly attending our programs.
Medical Care: Transformed for Life is all about people realising their full potential and reaching their dreams, from individuals being able to move beyond surviving to thriving. Good health and access to medical care is a must for this to happen which is why we invest in programs to help prevent illness, empower women to care for their families and to gain access to medical treatment should they need it.
