Sylvia Namaganda starts a fire to make tea in the predawn darkness in Lukaya, Uganda, where the Good Samaritan Women's Project has helped rural women improve their financial literacy, thus improving the quality of life for the women, many of whom are widows who also care for children who lost their parents to AIDS. The program was funded by the Call to Prayer and Self-Denial of United Methodist Women. Namaganda, a widow, cares for her own three children along with four she adopted after her sister died.
