Tulinawe is Lugandan for 'we are with you'.
Our vision is to stand alongside the local community in Kampala, Uganda and provide support to individuals and families when they need it most. There is no agenda, just a desire to do good, led by those who know the community best.
We have no interest in passing judgement on any situation. Our only objective is to mobilise resources for vulnerable families and individuals in need, and ensure that they have some where to turn to for immediate financial aid.
Sometimes it is not about the sum of money or what it can buy. It’s about knowing that you are not alone.
Nasamba Rehema is a 28-year-old mother of 5 children, living in Kirombo. She works as a shop attendant and earns less than £30 a month. Her rent alone requires two thirds of this income. Rehema and her children survive on one meal a day because she cannot afford more. An unexpected bill means that someone in Rehema’s family goes hungry.
“Please tell the organisation that I said thank you for all your help and that you acted so quickly”. - Rehema
Grace is a single mother of five children and manages multiple ongoing health issues, for which she requires regular medication. Grace does causal work to earn income but not enough to sustain her family.
Her medication makes her very weak, and as a result Grace is unable to work on some days. With the little income she earns from the casual work she does, Grace faces constant financial challenges for school fees, rent and food. Her main priority is to ensure she can pay school fees for her children’s education so you can give them a better future.
“Thank you very much. Who would have given me this amount of money in such a short period of time? I was worrying who I should go to for help.” - Grace
