Where it Started

by Tami Hoffman

Hoffman Family Foundation has partnered with some amazing women in Uganda. My husband was introduced to this “Women’s Group” (approximately 20 ladies) in 2014. After spending some time with the women and teaching some foundations of operating your own business, he was determined to give them an opportunity to see what they had learned. He gave them a small “Hand Up” and said my wife will return in September and I want to see what you can do with this investment.

I arrived in late September and was so impressed with their results. They had started a business call ‘MUKAMA AFAAYO FUNCTION SERVICES…. Tents and Chairs for Hire!’. They gave me the honor of doing a “ribbon cutting ceremony” to open their doors for business. Just six months later they have now doubled in size. 20 more ladies have joined the group and with their earnings they were able to purchase an additional tent. These women are hard workers with resilient spirits.

I am very proud that Hoffman Family Foundation is leaving a legacy of love, transforming lives and communities daily. – Tami Hoffman
