THE FUTURE IS EDUCATION
The Rakai District, where Mannya is, had just been devastated by the HIV epidemic. The virus had almost wiped out an entire generation and created a whole handful of issues for the community, including famine, orphaned children, and economic downfall.
We quickly identified education was where we could make a long-term, sustainable impact – and so, we got to work. The Foundation took a holistic approach, looking at the bigger picture. This focused on healthcare, water, food security, and wellbeing initiatives; all things that were proving to be critical barriers to kids receiving a quality education.
Fast forward to today and we have projects in South Africa, Thailand, and Australia, all while continuing our work in Uganda.
Who would’ve thought what started as a one-off donation, would become a model that makes lasting change in communities all around the world? Not us, but we’re pretty damn proud of it.SHOP FOUNDATION
