A future for teenage mothers and their children in Uganda
TEXAID raises money for charity via the sale of textiles. This money goes towards funding social projects in Switzerland and abroad.
Caritas Switzerland is one of TEXAID’s six founding aid agencies. Each year it receives funds which it uses to finance charity projects. These include a project in Uganda that is supported by Caritas Switzerland and its partner organisation, Christian Counseling Fellowship (CCF). In Uganda, pregnant girls and young mothers are denied access to the state education system. CCF has therefore set up the Nwoya Girls Academy. Here the girls are able to catch up on what they have missed at school and to gain a school-leaving qualification.
