In Partnership With: WAAKISA (Mercy)
Proposed Project Dates
21st October to 4th November 2017
About The Mission
WAAKISA (Mercy) is a Northern Ireland based Christian charity working with young pregnant girls in Uganda. Unfortunately some girls get pregnant as a result of rape or incest and can no longer live in their family home. LIFT has been working with Waakisa for the past ten years, building a pregnancy care centre which cares for these girls during and after their pregnancy. The girls live at the centre and learn practical parenting and vocational skills, until they are ready to settle down in a new life in the community.
About The Work
Most of the buildings are now complete and functioning, our 2017 team have been asked to help build an additional building to the education block. As well as this there is always the need to carry out routine maintenance work in order to keep the existing buildings in good condition for many years to come.
