Providing quality education and care for child mothers and their babies
MATERNAL & CHILD HEALTH
Reducing the alarming mortality rate for mothers and babies through access to safe births
Raising awareness in the community on how to protect young girls from sexual violence and early marriages
In 2002 as war raged through northern Uganda, Alice Achan saw a need to provide quality education for female victims of war and violence. Her first class began under a Kworo tree with 10 child mothers, babies in hand. 18 years later the Te-Kworo Foundation is made up of 2 boarding schools educating over 300 students annually while also providing maternal and medical healthcare to the local community.
A compelling story of hope, forgiveness, redemption and the human capacity to survive and even thrive against the backdrop of war and chaos. This is Alice’s story.
