Now a world champion power lifter Monique said: “Centrepoint are great, without them I don’t know where I would be and I have a lot of respect. They didn’t just put a roof over my head, they helped me with everything.”
She says, "It's about breaking down barriers in the community. The qualifications which our youngsters get are tailored to individual needs to make their learning enjoyable and to give them more freedom.”
Racheal (38) and her son Syrus, 10, are healthy and happy thanks to the lifesaving HIV treatment and counselling they have received from the Kadama Widows Association, a project in Eastern Uganda that uses money raised by Sport Relief to provide a range of vital services to families affected by HIV.
Racheal says, "Before Kadama Widows Association I didn’t have anything. I have learnt how to look after our livestock and have trained as a hairdresser so now I have my own business. Thanks to them, I am able to support my family."
