Namirembe is a member of a group of mothers in Kiboga, Uganda who have opened their families and homes to raising orphaned children in their community. Has raised several children, and currently is the guardian of Alex, age 13, as well as Nora, age 20. Weaves mats for a living, but is seeking a new source of income since she has had few customers recently. She is a part of our economic empowerment, and hopes to use her small business loan to diversify her income by raising poultry, since they are easy to care for, and she has not been in good health due to her age.
You can partner with Namirembe to empower her to raise her children well, and see her family thrive. $360 or $30 per month will fund her training and small business loan for one year.

Namirembe continues to struggle with health-related issues because of her age but remains hopeful. She has been collecting an income from raising and selling chickens and continues to provide for several children.
