How you can help


We are currently in the process of building a new website where we will have more options for making donations. However, you can visit our Donate page and make either a donation with Paypal or with a check,  Checks can be made payable to NUWOCSI and mailed to our U.S. office at:


176 Vernon St.

Worcester, MA 01610  

Your donations may be tax deductible and we will forward you a donation receipt for your tax records.

Currently, I am working with a group of 60 ladies from the Tegot-atoo village outside of Gulu, Uganda, teaching them sewing and more specifically, the art of quilting. All our quilts are hand pieced (sewn) and hand quilted. We are always in need of sewing notions and greatly appreciate what ever you could provide in the way of:

  • Hand Sewing needles
  • Quilting needles
  • Sewing thread (white)
  • Quilting thread ( all colors)
  • Common/quilting pins
  • Stitch rippers
  • Shears
  • Rotary Cutters
  • Rotary Cutter blades
  • Rotary cutter mats
  • Quilt batting

Quilt batting is difficult to obtain here in Uganda so that is always a request. It’s light weight so should not be too costly to ship, plus in shrinks well if a vacume bag is used to pack it and the most inexpensive batting would be most welcomed.

Group 3

If you could supply any of these items, in new or used condition would be most appreciative and welcomed. Perhaps you could organize a “sewing notion” drive at your church or women’s group.

Any of these items can be mailed to my attention at:

Thank you for your investment in the lives of women and children in Uganda. Together, with God leading, we can make a difference in their lives.

Is this not the fast which I choose,
To loosen the bonds of wickedness,
to undo the bands of the yoke,
And to let the oppressed go free
And break every yoke?
Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry
And bring the homeless poor into the house;
When you see the naked, to cover him;
And not to hide yourself from your own flesh?

Isaiah 58: 6-7

  1. Hi Nancy,

    I am now friends with Christine Sliwinski. My husband and I first traveled to Uganda last November. We have started a new ministry called Grow Uganda. We purpose to help the Christians of Uganda build successful businesses and help rebuild their economy. We are traveling to the Gulu area again in November and are partnering with Christine and also with Pastor Moses Ssembanda from Uganda (he has founded 131 churches and has several schools/orphanages through out the country). I am looking for as many contacts and resources as I can to make our efforts profitable. Do you work with Christine? Will you be in Uganda in November.
    Looking forward to hearing from you.
