From the beginning, Jake’s Diapers has leveraged partnerships with established organizations already serving people in need. It’s made it possible to easily connect with populations living in poverty, and create a wide-reaching impact around the world.
It’s also a source of inspiration, to realize the stories that come from the ripple effects our partnerships are creating.
HEAL Ministries in Uganda is one of our Diaper Drop partners. The organization’s aim is to “empower vulnerable, abandoned women and children in Christ-centered programs that teach sustainability and family preservation,” according to its website.
Here’s an example of the lives they are saving, as summarized from HEAL’s website:
Image a 14-year-old mom kicked out of her family and village. She wants to end life because she is pregnant from rape but doesn’t. She chooses hope and family and love. That same 16-year-old, two years later, skips joyfully through HEAL’s gates with her 2-year-old child to drop her off in childcare, because she has to hurry off to High School — choosing education and hope.
HEAL Ministries considers this a success, and we do, too.
Our hope is that our diaper donations empower individuals like this 14-year-old out of poverty, and your continual donations make this possible.
