Restoring Hope and Life to Outcast Young Mothers in Uganda.

WorldShare has partnered with Wakisa Ministries since 2008 to provide shelter and pre- and post-natal care to young girls with unplanned pregnancies in Uganda. These girls are often victims of abuse and sub­sequently abandoned by their families to avoid shame.

Wakisa is the only place that will welcome them in.

In addition to shelter and medical care, Wakisa also supports these young mums with counselling, training in vocational skills, avenues for returning to school and (where appropriate) help with reconciliation back into their families.

Wakisa are currently undertaking the construction of a new centre, which will increase the capacity to provide shelter and care for young mothers, as well as opening up the vocational training to the wider community of mums.
