email@example.com. I will be making up special cards which will include a photo of one or more of these women, and which can be given to the person you have in mind. If the cheque is made out to ACTS, your donation will be tax-receiptable. I told these women I would do what I could to help them, and I will. They are such beautiful women, strong and determined - the same group I first met with almost 7 years ago, before I started the Kitambaa Sewing Project - so they hold a very special place in my heart.

The little girl in the red dress is her daughter Davita, but all the other children here are either HIV positive or orphans, and it's these children she wants to help. So this is another of our new commitments - to help Recheal in any way we can, to help her build the shelter she dreams of. She is an amazing woman, and I have no doubt whatsoever that she will make this dream a reality.

The widows group in Kabiunda - a small village in the south of Uganda - numbers 118 members, while the HIV positive group in the same village numbers 55. Yesterday we met with both groups, to hear about the productivity of the plots of land that have been rented for them, and the micro-finance program, through which they hope to raise enough income to rent the plots in subsequent years.
