Today is Thanksgiving in the United States, a holiday where we spend time with family and friends, eat good food, and remember all the things we have to be thankful for. And so, it is with immense gratitude in my heart that I list out a few of the things that SAFE's leaders are grateful for:

  • Our passionate and dedicated volunteers... SAFE is fortunate to be led by some of the most passionate, caring, and dedicated young professionals we've ever met. We are grateful that so many people are willing to give of their time, talent, and resources to help us in achieving our mission to empower women, their families, and communities to realize good health and development.
  • Our supporters... SAFE's work, and all that we are able to accomplish with it, is made possible by the generosity of the public. We are grateful for the contributions of time, money, and expertise from our many supporters.
  • Our staff... SAFE is fortunate to have some incredibly talented and dedicated Ugandan staff members, without which our work would not be nearly as successful. We are grateful for all of them, especially for our Program Manager, Mukalu Medie!
  • Last, but definitely not least, we are thankful for the Ugandan men, women, and children who work tirelessly in partnership with SAFE to improve the health and development of their communities. We are impressed by their tenacity, by their creativity, and by their willingness to work with us towards achieving our common goal: improving the health and well-being of women, children, and communities.
We have SO much to be grateful for, so from all of us at Safe Mothers, Safe Babies, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and a big THANK YOU!!

On behalf of the entire SAFE Team,
- Jacquie Cutts
President and CEO
