Melanie is a busy metro Denver mom who loves spending time with her family and pets, and she wants to live in a world where people look out for one another. She decided to find an international organization that works with women and children where she could volunteer and chose Outreach Uganda because of its high impact and low overhead.
"Nothing is for show; all we do is help," says Melanie.
Melanie describes Outreach Uganda as an organization that helps Ugandan women earn a sustainable and living wage. We are "helping them help themselves," says Melanie.
Currently, Outreach Uganda is working with three villages in Uganda to help them generate sustained income. In addition, Outreach Uganda has a child sponsorship program that helps children ages four and older to receive an education, a luxury many rural Ugandan children aren't provided.
Beyond her dedication of time in her busy schedule, Melanie's family also sponsors a young boy. We can't express the appreciation we have for the time Melanie donates to Outreach Uganda.
Do you want to make a difference like Melanie in the lives of women and children in Uganda? Join us as a volunteer and help us promote sustainable income and education in our communities!
