HUGS is helping 8 young people in Jinja. They suffer deafness, eyesight problems and lameness. Trustee Denise Ead has been researching eye problems and found that perhaps 60% of children could be helped greatly by just having an optometry test and glasses prescribed.
We ave funded an Eyesight Camp in Jinja and 10 children are being assessed. At about £40 a child this can really change a life.
The picture shows on of the children being assessed in March this year.
It was Emmeline Pankhurst who said "We have to free half the human race, the women, so that they can free the other half".
And that is what our Lira Girls Secondary School is really trying to do. Together with kick starting some Women's Groups we know that the long term effects can be enormous.
If you are a sceptic and like to see evidence then please look at some of Hans Roslings You Tube talks on demographics. They are awesome. He died in March this year.
I really commend you to take a look at this TED Talk where someone wiser than me explains it so clearly.
