Charity Women Association is a women initiative which was conceived by Aino Dorothy and formed into an Association by a group of ten Women residing within Soroti Municipality. The Association came into force late in the year 2003.
The idea was birthed as a result of persistent and increasing Poverty situations amongst the women of Soroti. Many factors were contributing to the economic decline among women. The cultural concept where women not allowed to posses, make decisions and have control over economic enterprises as well as resources, continued Civil wars, gross economic mismanagement by civil servants, persistent and increasing HIV/AIDS and AIDS prevalence rate among Women, etc.

who we are


Background
The essence of beginning the home based care was because we realised that the ladies were suffering silently at home with out any support and most of the times they did not have anything to eat, and nobody to help them at home. As a result there was need to come in and filling the gap because this was really letting them down. Hence the beginning of providing for them home based care services.

Purpose/objectives
1. To provide support to the very ill members through the provision of food supplements.
2. To provide care and support to the members through the provision of basic counselling and referrals to those who are terminally ill.


Background
This also began as a result of following up the members after they have been seen through the home based care. And also assessing their situations and critical needs that they may want.

Purpose/objectives
1. To assess the needs of the members
