In Partnership With: WAAKISA (Mercy)

Proposed Project Dates

2nd to 16th October 2021

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

Our team plan to help with the building of a new Primary School in the grounds of what used to be the vegetable garden and piggery, near the rear of the site.  Once built the school will help towards the up-keep of Waakisa and in making it self-supporting as well as providing free education for the children of Waakisa.  Our team will also be carry out routine maintenance work in order to keep existing Waakisa buildings in good condition. This team was cancelled in 2020 due to Covid-19.
