GBB began funding small community based projects in Uganda in May of 2006. We are currently assisting two Grandmother’s Associations. The Associations serve more than 300 grandmothers.
Grandmothers who are members of a grandmother’s association may receive many different kinds of support. The grandmother above received funding through a micro-lending project to start a clothes mending business and a vegetable stand. She uses the money she earns to pay for basic necessities for her grandchildren.
