In Buwunga Village, Judith’s dream of becoming a medical nurse was about to be snatched away—along with her childhood. At only 12, she was presented to the man who would soon be her husband. NIRP staff and community workers met with Judith’s parents, explaining the physical and psychological dangers of early marriage, and the country’s laws against the practice.

The wedding was called off. NIRP empowers children and their families in every community by giving them tools and protecting children from abuse and exploitation, including awareness of the laws that protect them. Join us

Fundraising

Dear friends,

Warm greetings from NIRP’s headquarters in Masaka, Uganda.

We are contacting you to invite you to support our campaign to raise funds for gifts to empower 100 families out of poverty. We need your help both to enable this important project to take place and to help NIRP become a permanent member of globalgiving – an online fundraising platform.
 (see http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/gifts-to-empower-100-families-out-of-poverty/ )

To become a member of globalgiving NIRP has to participate in an “Open Challenge”, during which we have four weeks to raise USD 4,000 from at least 50 donors. Passing this test will allow NIRP to put more projects on globalgiving’s website to attract more funds. The Open Challenge started on 1 April to 30 April 2012

Some people may think that it is only one child that you are sponsoring, and it cannot make much a difference the world, but if you make a decision today to sponsor a child it is likely you are not alone, and it is one less child in this world that does not have to live in poverty.
