Inspiration: Growing up with a single mother, Milly Nassolo, 25, received support from relatives and friends through school. One day, she travelled to Kagadi where she found an expectant woman abandoned by health workers because she had no mama kit. She saved the mother but was overwhelmed by the stories of what women in areas go through to deliver, writes Gabriel Buule.

Milly Nassolo’s journey into charity started in Kagadi Hospital in Kagadi District. She was moved by women who walked more than seven kilometres from Kyenzige Village to the main hospital to access health care.
At that point, she was convinced that she could do something to change the status quo. “I felt the urge to return a favour to my late mother and those who helped us while growing up,” she adds
Nassolo, together with her husband Robert Kikomeko, chose to use part of their savings to invest in the underprivileged women and children in Kagadi. Initially, they chose to pay school fees for 15 orphaned children who could not access proper education.
