We have been supporting SisuGirls since it was founded in 2014. Sisu is a Finnish term for determination, bravery and strength and SisuGirls aims to inspire and encourage sisu in girls through sport and adventure. They write stories, showcase strong and positive role models and provide opportunities for girls to take part in sport and adventure programs including trail running, skateboarding, rock climbing and surfing.
CHILDREN OF UGANDA
Keeping children in school helps a nation thrive, which builds friends in vital parts of the world. Children of Uganda give hundreds of orphans and vulnerable children a safe place to live, eat, love and learn, from age 5 all the way up to completing their secondary education, vocational training or university. There are more orphans in Uganda than anywhere else in the world — over 2.4 million children — due to the AIDS epidemic, extreme poverty, and decades of civil conflict. We’re on the ground in Uganda to help as many of these young people as we can. Children of Uganda give children safe shelter, food, clothing, education and medical care. In Uganda, there are no public schools, so without school fees, children don’t learn. Because of Children of Uganda, children gain an education and the life skills they need for future success. Their lives are completely transformed.
