Building a Path from Extreme Poverty in Eastern Uganda: How I Moved from Starvation into a Changemaker
I was born to a violent, polygamous Dad who did not pay my tuition since childhood. My mum, who herself never went to school, resorted to distilling alcohol to pay my school fees. She supported me only up to secondary school in 1998. After that, she was not able to take me any further. I went to Uganda’s capital Kampala in 1999, and pursued several hard labor jobs as a street child for 2 years.
The Life You Can Save’s 2016 Year in Review
Our 2016 Annual Report chronicles our ongoing growth, which would not be possible without our talented core Team and our skilled volunteers. Nor would it be possible without all of you who have generously donated to our Recommended Nonprofits as well as those who have financially supported TLYCS itself over the past few years. And last, but certainly not least, we are indebted to Peter Singer for his ongoing advocacy on behalf of the global poor and his enthusiasm for and help with the development of The Life You Can Save as an organization.
Where Are The Women? Reflections on International Women’s Day 2017
Frances Kissling, women's rights activist and The Life You Can Save board member, discusses International Women’s Day (March 8th), " observed throughout the world as a day of action for women, a time to seek specific improvements in women’s lives and to commit to ending the suffering that women experience merely because they are women."
Trump’s Policy Threatens Reproductive Rights of Global Poor
Just days after an estimated 3 million people in over a hundred countries including Ghana, Malawi, South Africa, India, Peru and Nigeria marched in the Women’s March on Washington, President Trump reinstated and expanded severe prohibitions on US funding for foreign non governmental organizations that advocate for or provide legal abortion services. Provide such services with your own money and lose all US funding for other services, said Trump. Hardest hit historically by the ban have been family planning organizations in developing countries, but the Trump ban, known as the Global Gag Rule (GGR), has extended its reach to include all groups that receive US global health assistance.

Both safe abortion and modern contraception are essential to women’s health and well being and reproductive health is increasingly considered among human rights. But they are also essential tools in accomplishing TLYCS’ goals –improving the lives of those living in extreme poverty.
