Since 2007, LITA programs have brought empowerment to thousands of orphaned and vulnerable children in Uganda, in at least one of the following ways. By providing assistance in areas of food, shelter, health care & safety, education and income generation:
- Firstly, in emergency circumstances, with strategic and short term ﬁnancial support for goods and services that foster the children’s immediate survival and well being, and..
- Secondly, by providing mentoring, organizational, and financial support for projects and programs designed to bring long term benefit to the children. The projects LITA supports are locally directed, promote stakeholder participation, investment and ownership, and advance conditions and environments towards sustainable self-sufﬁciency.
Providing emergency food in times of shortfall, through programs like Heifers for Caregivers, and by supporting the growing of food by helping with plowing costs, seeds and tools, caregivers and the orphaned children living with them are empowered. Find Out More
