TMCSF’s projects address our beneficiaries holistically with a combination of safe, open learning environments, compassionate psychosocial support and carefully sequenced materials that foster cognitive development, challenge unhealthy myths or beliefs and entertain new, more helpful ideas and strategies.
The Research carried out in many villages in Uganda has shown that 95% of teenage girls and teenage mothers in villages do not have sanitary towels to use during menstruation. The girls have adopted to using dried banana fibers as sanitary pads like in the image above. We have come up with a project to make Re-Usable sanitary pads like in the image above to help these young girls for a period of 2 months. The main purpose of this project is to help provide teenage girls and young women in Uganda with sanitary towel. As you probably know, in Uganda young girls will often share their sanitary towels (usually scrap cloth) with their mothers or other women in the household. Of course they are washed thoroughly between uses, but various diseases can be transmitted through sharing in spite of that.
The lack of safe drinking water and sanitation facilities are the root causes of poverty, hunger and diseases throughout Uganda. Our water projects have an immediate life-changing impact, particularly for women, teenagers and children, who have the responsibility to gather water for their families every day of their lives. TMCSF Charity’s water projects are tooled to create sustainable socio-economic development in the poor rural communities of Uganda.
With your support, the water project, has transformed people’s lives as explained by our Executive Director:
Access to clean and safe water truly changes lives. We know that when a water resource is installed for a town or a village, girls return to school as they no longer need to spend their days travelling many kilometres to collect water. Women begin small businesses. Men are no longer too sick to work. Fields are watered and food supply becomes more reliable. Health returns and children grow up to be productive members of their community. The cycle of poverty is broken. Lives change. Access to clean, safe water isn’t an end, it is a means. When water comes… everything changes.

Giving clothes is a great way of helping out the community, donations of clothing can make a great difference to an individual. TMCSF is a not-for-profit organisation matching public generosity with genuine need. They will match your pre-loved item with a vulnerable Ugandan who needs it. Through our website, we share stories of genuine need in the community with the hope that generous everyday people worldwide will be inspired and motivated to give.
We connect healthcare volunteers with over 2,000 children and their families through life-saving surgeries, blood donations, checkups (HIV Aids, Malaria, Polio, Hepatitis, etc) and treatment (Deworming, Vaccinating, etc). The access to quality care in villages is far inferior to what even the most underprivileged children can access in major cities. Due to lack of education, financial resources, and adequate medical services, these children suffer, often needlessly.
We carryout HIV Aids testing and Counseling, mental & physical support of infected adolescents with the help of our partners.
By uniquely harnessing two great passions – medicine and art – our vision of making a difference in the lives of Uganda’s forgotten children and families now shines in brilliant color in the smallest corners of the nation. And with the help of hundreds of donors and volunteers we’re working to touch even more. Join us.
