Helping Women and Children
in Uganda Survive and Thrive

You Can Help Make a Difference in Uganda

Women and Children in Uganda have gotten a raw deal. Disease and sin have left many families with no father and no way to sustain a healthy life

Heshima invites women in and teaches them marketable skills so that they can survive and their families thrive. In the process the women are served, restored, empowered, and strengthened.

Educating Women & Children in Uganda

Teaching marketable skills to women over a 12 month period. Launching them on a path to self-sustainability

Empowering Women & Children in Uganda

Upon graduation, for skills training, the women receive the tools they need to go build a business

Encouraging Women & Children in Uganda

Throughout skills training, the women are encouraged in the context of community with bible studies and basic life skills.

How Women and Children in Uganda Can Thrive


Women Join Our Community

Each woman who comes to know about Heshima typically does through the life change of a friend or neighbor. When they do, and see that they too can thrive, they apply to be apart of the Heshima family. After application, women go through a home interview process and start attending bible study and discipleship events at our office.


Women Enter Skills Training

Women enter our Monday, Wednesday, and Friday skills training where they learn valuable skills for business, as well as financial training, well women care, and the joy of Jesus as our precious gift and savior. They perfect their skills over 12 months and end up in an internship before graduation.


Women and Children in Uganda Win!

After they have passed their exams, our women graduate with the blessings of a new sewing machine or supplies to start a home-based salon. We have graduated over 75 women from our classes and as many as 70 have thriving businesses and can afford their children’s school fees and home expenses.
