    Many Ways to Give

    We believe that giving is an incredibly personal experience – and that’s why people choose to give in so many different ways. But deciding how to give can also be an overwhelming experience. We’ve compiled some of the most common ways that people choose to support refugees and the American Refugee Committee. Please use the information provided as a guide but know that at the American Refugee Committee we remain open to new and different ways of giving.

    Keeping money safe at the Juru mill

    Milling About

    Changemakers 365 is all about doing the doable. It’s about opening our eyes to the opportunities to make an impact in a person’s life with relatively few resources – and making change each and every day of the year.

    It takes a long chain of people to get food from the field and into bellies. But because the chain is long and interconnected, it’s also ripe with opportunities for support.

    In one such chain, we have the super flour mill in a neighborhood called Juru, where residents can pay to have their grains milled. Milling helps prepare grains for cooking and eating. There are a number of larger mills throughout the community in Nakivale Refugee Settlement, but the Juru mill is one that ARC and its staff know well.

    We visited Adrian one morning to see what might be helpful for him and his colleagues as they keep the mill running. One challenge they identified was with accounting – it can be difficult to find a safe space to keep the money they earn. So, we decided to get the group a safety box to store their money and records!

    When we spoke with Adrian, he said, “it will help us to store our money. Thank you very much for the box you have given to us. Thank you for following up with us with continued support.”
