We are having an amazing silent auction again this year. Below is one of the items that will be available on the evening of the event. A quilt created by Lauren Wallace, one of our members.

Janet Museveni, First Lady of Uganda and the wife of President Museveni, was recently invited to St.

Lawrence Secondary School. In her address to the school, she acknowledged the contribution of HEAL International and thanked the Canadian donors who provided the funds and support to enable the community to build their secondary school.

This is quite an honour for the school and for us to be acknowledged at the highest level of government in Uganda.

Find out more about our new St Lawrence School.

A Donor Spends Time in Uganda

We would like to thank Salma Murji for traveling to Uganda and reporting on our projects. Salma is a generous donor to our school projects and was able to see firsthand what school life is like in rural Uganda. Please view her blog and read about her adventures.

The Journey of the Traveling Bear

We are on the map!

One of our school projects, St. Lawrence, is finally showing up on Google Maps. This image will give you a sense of why this school was needed. There are no secondary schools in the area that meet the needs of local students who either had to travel a ridiculously long distance on foot or not attend school at all. We are happy our organization is actively working to ensure the needs of children are being met in partnership with local authorities. Read more about St. Lawrence here.  Click the map below to see it on Google.

Thank you to everyone that supported the Killer Heels for HEAL event from those that sponsored our evening, donated goods and services, volunteered or attended. Together our vision for improving the quality of life of vulnerable children in Uganda will be one step closer to being realized.

Thank you to our major sponsors who generously donated to help support our evening.

Our Mandate

HEAL International was conceived from a vision* of vibrant, healthy communities that:

  • provides support to meet the basic needs of children, youth and families.
  • promotes inclusion to enable all members to participate actively in social, economic, cultural and political life.
  • promotes opportunities for the lifelong acquisition of knowledge and skills by all members.

* from “Reclaiming Our Humanity”, Sherri Torjman, Caledon Institute of Social Policy, December 2001.

Our Partner

We have long-standing relationships with the communities we work with.  We work with established and trusted partners in Uganda, such as YES (Youth Encouragement Services) Uganda, a well-established Ugandan NGO that has been helping orphaned children and vulnerable families since 1996.   Other partners include health and education departments at various levels of local government.
