    Dear Friends, we are Rubaga Division Disabled Association a group of disabled women and men who wish to request for financial assistance for our group which is doing bookbinding in our country Uganda.
    We started this project after pooling out small money from our pocket which is not enough to make all the requirements such as getting big cutting machines, working place, buying materials etc. As disabled people we think this can help us to earn extra income as well as help us to support our children.

    Next WorldNow Community investment is a brilliant idea that will support marginallised communities .For the case of Tanzania good education opportunities are for the privileged rich who can send their children in private schools. Children from poor families become labour pools as housegirls/boys in well to do families in cities or in private farms. Education is becoming a previlage for the rich.
