Activities and Needs

Precious Gift’s activities go hand-in-hand with our needs. Here is a list of our initiatives, both ongoing and in development, and their requirements. We depend on our supporters to help provide for these needs. You can help, both financially and by donating your time or knowledge, either on-site in Uganda or here in Canada.
