April 2022 Newsletter

Isn’t it lovely to see spring arrive? Here in the UK, many of us have seen the sun peek out from behind the clouds, golden daffodils trumpeting, blossom decorating the trees and heard birds welcoming the light mornings. In Uganda, we have baby goats and mangos aplenty!

With all these signs of new life, spring is a great time for looking forward and that’s exactly what we’re doing here at S.A.L.V.E. We have lots of new and exciting things on the horizon and we really want you to be part of them.

Dreams for the Future event

We are running our Dreams for the Future online event which will take place in the evening on 12 April 2022 and we really hope you can join us. This engaging, online event is being held on the the International Day for Street Children to share solidarity with street-connected children on this globally recognised day and to celebrate what we as a charity have achieved to date.

We also want to share our vision with you, for a future where there is ‘No Street Called Home‘.

And lastly the winners of our charity raffle will be drawn live at the event so you will be able to find out if you’ve won one of our fantastic prizes!

We really hope that you can join the event and share our dreams with us.

April news round-up

In March we celebrated International Women’s Day 2022. We recognised hard working mothers everywhere but particularly one woman who, thanks to her determination and enrolment in our Business Empowerment programme, now makes 3000% more than she used to.

As part of International Women’s Day we stopped to think of all of the girls in Uganda who can’t access education, often kept home to help with chores or married off for dowry payments. We encouraged you all to help break this cycle and help us get street-connected girls into school.

Check out our blog, written by a 16 year old boy who has been through more hardship by his age than many will experience in a lifetime. 💚 💛

Now the weather is getting better it’s not too late to sign up for the Peak District Challenge. There are 7 different route options: ranging from a 10km loop right up to the ultimate challenge, 100km – so there is a challenge to suit everyone. Join our team to help change children’s lives for the better. 🌞
