The previous boarding location, within Ibanda town, could no longer suit the growing needs of the organization. Therefore, we have begun construction on a new location!
Features of the new location include a larger girls dorm, an expanded skilling center, a women’s tea room, accommodations for international volunteers, a craft shop, water and electricity connections, and staff offices.
We are grateful to all of our partners thus far who have helped make this dream a reality, but we are not done yet!
The Marianne Foundation needs $10,000 more to complete the project - $5,000 to complete the main structure and $5,000 to finish the girls dorm!

disease, access to basic needs and survival consume daily life. With unprecedented post
COVID-19 challenges, refugees require urgent comprehensive programs to enhance their
Being a women or young girl in a refugee camp exacerbates these concerns. Reports documented by several human rights commissions and multilateral organizations have proved it time and again. Challenges of early marriage, unemployment and water and sanitation in the temporary roofed shelters can make daily life a struggle.
