Where does my money go?
What seems to be small money by others makes a world of difference when given to those who know first hand their need. When we work together, small donations add up, for example, $ 10 can not buy a reasonable meal in USA, UK, CANADA but this same money can help to purchase scholastic materials for a child in Masaka, $50 can help to purchase materials for five etc.
In addition, your donation can enable YWAV to conduct training sessions in human rights, HIV/AIDS etc Once you make a donation to Youth with a vision, we shall update you on how your money was used.
