Through Watoto’s Living Hope program in Uganda, vulnerable women receive crucial support that enables them to stay alive and care for their children.
Most of the women at Living Hope are HIV+ single mothers who struggle to take care of their children. Some women were forced into marriage as young girls. When their husbands died from AIDS, they were left destitute and sick.
More than 2,600 women are benefitting from the program currently, which provides vocational training, trauma counseling, adult literacy, basic business skills, and moral and spiritual guidance.
Marilyn’s book, Return To Dignity, chronicles the incredible journeys of eight women who have triumphed in the face of adversity. During the tour, Marilyn will be sharing the incredible victories of the women, exciting Living Hope projects, and ways in which people can get involved.
