Mindfulness-Based Practices for Trauma & Resiliency
Humanitarian Aid to the Women and Children of the Katwe Slums in Kampala, Uganda.
The Nachan Project brings mindfulness-based practices to the women and children of the Karamojong tribe living in the Katwe slums of Kampala, Uganda as well as humanitarian aid, psycho-social support, public health advocacy and capacity strengthening.
At The Nachan Project, we help to empower over 250 women-led households, benefiting approximately 1,000 women and children, by equipping them with practical, sustainable, and culturally appropriate skills. Our mission is to help them move beyond surviving into thriving. We firmly believe that individual well-being and community health are intertwined, forming the cornerstone of our approach.
Our commitment is to provide a hand up, not a "handout". Through our comprehensive programs, we aim to nurture the agency the women have over their own lives and the lives of their children. Ultimately, we envision a future where they lead The Nachan Project themselves, fostering enduring positive change within their communities.
