The Nutritional Value of Yogurt to Northern Uganda

“Health, Wealth and Happiness…” These are three common criteria people use to measure their satisfaction in life.

Alongside our primary goal to provide secure employment in a “trauma-informed” workplace for survivors of trafficking and other trauma, we have the opportunity to improve the health and nutrition of communities in Northern Uganda.
