Morokeni! Sawubona! i nimbaara! Namaskar! Om Swastiastu! Hello!
COVID has been particularly hard on women artisans, weavers, and traders eking out a living in Africa and Asia. They have just had to struggle significantly more than usual to make sure they, and their children, survive. Their income-generating opportunities have largely disappeared and the women are likely to continue facing these challenges well into 2022.
We recognize that there is much need around the world at this time, and deep inequities all around us. You're probably already helping in all the ways you can. But if you can support Ubuntu women at this time, to whatever extent possible, we would be most grateful.
Every little bit helps:
$15 provides 5 masks to a family (and also income to the local women who sew the masks)
$100 offers SMS educational support to 100 students for one month
$500 provides 25 women with menstrual cups
$1000 can provide cash prizes to graduating students from one high school to help them pursue further studies, or support income-generating activities for women in one community.
Ubuntu operates entirely with the help of volunteers in the United States and Europe. A few women from within each community where Ubuntu at Work operates are trained and hired as local staff. A 100% of your tax-deductible donation goes to supporting women in need.
