At Prakasa, we know if we can take this experience of COVID 19 and start to shift our global perspective, we truly can live as one! We have set up a fund for the women of Uganda and will be supplying them with food and their HIV / AIDS medicine bi-weekly, for 8 weeks. The cost of this is $375 every 2 weeks.
My 30th birthday is April 29, and there is nothing more I would wish for then for everyone to think about donating $5, $10, $20 to our fund! Anyone who may have bought me a coffee, a cute shirt or a sushi dinner- please think about feeding these women and keeping their families safe!
I don't believe this is a charity and I do fully still stand by our motto of HAND UP, NOT HAND OUT. By providing these women and their children with food and medicine, we allow them to continue their daily fight and continue their future career dreams!
$27 provides 64 people with food and medicine for 1 day
$188 provides 64 people with food and medicine for 1 week
$375 provides 64 people with food and medicine for 2 weeks

*Updated: raised $500*
For 2020 we have 2 main goals for Prakasa Co. First, is to keep the women employed by building the scrunchie business and eventually adding other products to their line. Second, is to get all of their 19 children's school expenses paid for the year. Often it is a choice between paying for school or paying for their families' food. If you were in that situation, which would you choose?
An entire year of education for one child costs $500 and includes tuition, exam fees, breakfast, lunch and their supplies. We all know that education is the only way out of poverty and that is my goal: to stop the cycle NOW
When you DONATE you are helping Prakasa register as a non-profit, assisting 19 children to go to school, micro-loans for women and funding more vocational skills training programs
