We are an organization that supports, educates and empowers girls to stay in school. The work we do is two pronged;
Project Princess Initiative (PPI) is a local Christian based non-government organization fully registered under registration NO. S.5914/10113 and started its work in 2009. It was in that year when the founder Mrs. Fiona Mirembe Kiggundu who owned a pre- school was approached by two young Girls in search for employment opportunities in her school. Being with a passionate heart and more so a mother, Mrs. Fiona Kiggundu did not offer employment to these young Girls because they were teens still in high school but realized the need to empower them bearing in mind that there could be more other girls in a similar situation. The two Girls were welcomed as her own for counseling sessions at her school who later spread the message to their friends in schools they attended to and they met once in a while.
My name is Nakibombo Phiona aged 24 years. Am number one of four children raised by a single mother due to the death of our father. I joined PPI in 2018 while in senior three at Kira secondary school when a team from Project princess came for a talk session about self- esteem at our school.
My name is Asianut blessing aged 19 years. I was at Kalinabiri primary school in my primary four when a team from project princess visited our school to speak to girls. My parents were struggling to make us stay in school due to financial crisis and project princess promised to help the vulnerable girls finish school.
My name is Asio Mary Diana aged 23 years. I was at Kira secondary school in 2018 in senior two when a team from project princess came to our school to encourage girls stay in school. They said they help out with vulnerable girls and I was among those whose auntie struggled to raise fees for since I lost all my parents at a tender age.
My names are Daisy Namutebi, 13 years ago I lived in a small village called Kaseesa. I lived with my grandmother and everyday, I walked 3 kilometers to school barefooted. At some point, the old lady could not afford to pay school fees for me, her beloved grand daughter anymore due to poverty. What is interesting, is the amount of money she could not afford.
My names are Lillian Natwijuka, I am a princess at PPI. This organization has proven to be the parents that I didn't meet. I was introduced to staff at PPI when I was in Primary 5, my guardians at the time could no longer afford to pay my tuition. Staff from PPI visited my school, our senior woman at school, told PPI staff about my issue.
My Name is Keren, I am thankful to God for PPI. My third year in High school, I dropped out. My father had lost his job and my mother was a stay at home Mom. This meant I would never achieve my dream of being a banker. I stayed home without schooling for over a year. i would cry everyday. One day, PPI staff visited my sister's school. she was already a princess and they had found her a sponsor. This time she told them about me and my need. She gave them our mother's contact number. The next week, my mom and I visited PPI offices and they agreed to find me a sponsor. I am so blessed to know Dr.Ben and Pat Allen from St. Louis who have been my sponsors through High school and Kyambogo University. I completed my Bachelor in Economics and Banking. God is faithful. We are grateful to Ms. Fiona for allowing God to use her through the PPI Ministry, so we can reach our dreams!
