    Sending the Nakivale team in Uganda some love

    Day 45

    Will You Be Our Valentine?

    For our special Valentine’s Day edition of Changemakers 365, we’re taking a short break from our redesign of Sisterhood Boutique and hopping to Nakivale Refugee Settlement in Uganda. Our ARC teammates in the settlement are spending this Valentine’s Day away from their loved ones, so we’re bringing the love to them.

    And nothing says Valentine’s Day like chocolate, candy, and messages from the heart.

    Check out our surprise for the team!

    Nakivale is home to over 100,000 refugees from across East Africa. Each and every day, our team there pours their heart and soul into their work, supplying the entire camp with clean water and providing services that help people heal from abuse and trauma. We wanted our valentine to be as big as their hearts!

    Who doesn’t love a good surprise? Each bag included a personal Valentine’s message, letting them know we’re thinking about them today, and everyday.

    “Thank you for bringing the blessings. You are putting a smile on our faces!” said Hope.

    The everyday of humanitarian work can be tough. Our teams face difficult challenges that aren’t always easy to process. This heartfelt surprise went a long way in boosting their spirits, sending a little extra love their way!
