Happy New Year!
January 02, 2017
BENEFITING: ACACIA AVENUE DESIGNS INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 22, 2016
Our goal is to hire as many Ugandan women we can in January 2017*.
For TWO new hires for ONE YEAR it costs $8,536 to cover all of their expenses.
That is 86 people donating $100 each. Less than 100 people donating $100 each can alter the lives of 2 women and countless others that they are surrounded by through their daily living.
For $100 YOU can permanently set up a woman for success and give her the opportunity to pass down skills and training to her family and friends.
Broken down, that is $8.34 a month for 1 YEAR you would give to provide 2 women fair wages, skills training, a post secondary education, and financial and health training.
Acacia Avenue Designs was created to provide opportunities, skills training, a safe place to live, and funding for a vocational program to give young Ugandan women the edge the need to succeed in their communities. We strive to DREAM BIG. LIVE PASSIONATELY. by ensuring as many of the hurdles due to life circumstances are minimized. Our 3 year program provides fair wages, skills training in tailoring, specific programs in nutrition, self-development, budgeting, saving, and future planning all while providing a safe housing and work environment. We also help with next steps as our employees leave our organization to start their own companies or join other admirable companies.
We do this by creating WIFE HUGGERS to be sold globally to offset the overhead costs of the training and support we provide to EACH and EVERY EMPLOYEE. This not only provides a sustainability for the non-profit, but we have hands on training with all our employees on what goes in to running a business, and providng real skills for real women that have a passion for bettering their lives.
To cover all the needs of ONE employee for ONE YEAR we need to raise $4,268.
For TWO new hires for ONE YEAR it costs: $8,536
For THREE new hires for ONE YEAR: $12,804
For FOUR new hires for ONE YEAR: $17,072
For FIVE new hires for ONE YEAR: $21,340
The breakdown of costs for ONE YEAR:
*Goal set to 4,268 to ensure that if minumum goal is reached we can hire 1 Ugandan woman while continuing to raise funds to hire more women. We want to ensure that when we hire EACH & EVERY woman we are able to be 100% supportive & helpful & provide a holistic approach to helping to create success stories in EACH woman's life.
