In Partnership With: WAAKISA (Mercy)

Proposed Project Dates

19th October to 2nd November 2019

About The Mission

WAAKISA (Mercy) is a Northern Ireland based Christian charity working with young pregnant girls in Uganda. Unfortunately some girls get pregnant by 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 2019 team plan to help build an additional building to the education block, which will serve as retail units for the girls to sell their tailoring and hairdressing skills. As well as carrying out much needed routine maintenance work in order to keep the existing buildings in good condition for many years to come.
