What is a Hand Up?

In sharing insights about his Ugandan communities, our liaison Fr. Matthias Kakooza, has often described the help people need as a “hand up” rather than a “hand out.” Students and their families contribute whatever they can to meet their educational goals, yet often fall short. The “hand up” we offer means the difference between a student entering the workforce with a college degree or trade skill versus trying to find meaningful work without this development.
