ACT supports the entrepreneurial efforts of these women by promoting the sale of handmade jewelry, baskets and soccer balls. Proceeds are divided up according to how much product each woman supplied. The women use the proceeds as they see fit—to pay for tuition, health care, antiretroviral medications, housing, clothing, etc. Some women have been able to start their own business such as a small store, a pineapple farm and a chicken-raising operation. They also contribute money to various AIM causes such as buying bedding for orphans. Learn more including how to purchase these unique items.
The results are clear: with generous support from willing individuals, the lives of Rakai children and women are changed forever.
