1,183 mamas in Uganda are a part of the BFAU family along with their 6,500+ kiddos across 32 villages in 38 women's cooperatives
There in the grass, a quiet hush fell over the women. Some clasped their hands to their hearts, while others held their hands open. Their eyes were closed in quiet reflection. "I am loved. I am worth loving." They quietly repeated - as both a prayer and a promise. "I am worth more," they continued. Slowly, they opened their eyes and locked eyes with each other. They repeated the truth to one another and then about one another.

Abraham, the first college graduate in his entire family! Congratulations, Abraham. Your mama is super proud and so are we!
Joining a village means helping change the future for the children of our mamas!
Stella, from Damasiko Village, told us in 2014 "My greatest prayer is for school fees for my children. I am trying my hardest, but it is difficult. Often, I will go without food to save money, but then my milk dries up for baby Mary."
We think Stella should keep eating. We will help your kids go to school, Stella will keep eating and baby Mary will not go hungry. Sound like a plan? Join a village today to help make this happen for the mamas in "your" village!
