Help One Child Thrive

For The Jaya collection, we have chosen to support the following two charities. A portion of our profits each year will be donated to them.

Help One Child Thrive (HOCT) is a charity organization taking care of orphans and needy children located in Idudi, Uganda, East Africa. These children lost their parents; some died of HIV/AIDS and others died of other common diseases – so these children are left with no one to help and care for them; others live with their grandparents who are also living below poverty line and who cannot provide basic necessities to these children. Going to school was, for many of them, an impossible dream.

The founder of Help One Child Thrive, Mugoya Swaliki, also grew up as an orphan; he had witnessed and experienced the hard life of those children and since he knew what it meant to be an orphan, he built the HOCT organisation to save these children from poverty, to help them live a better life and fulfil their dreams. To help them thrive.

equal Justice initiative

Founded in 1989 by Bryan Stevenson, a widely acclaimed public interest lawyer and bestselling author of Just Mercy, EJI is a private, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides legal representation to people who have been illegally convicted, unfairly sentenced, or abused in state jails and prisons. We challenge the death penalty and excessive punishment and we provide re-entry assistance to formerly incarcerated people.

EJI works with communities that have been marginalized by poverty and discouraged by unequal treatment. We are committed to changing the narrative about race in America. EJI produces groundbreaking reports, an award-winning calendar, and short films that explore our nation’s history of racial injustice. And in 2018, we opened the Legacy Museum: From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice as part of our national effort to create new spaces, markers, and memorials that address the legacy of slavery, lynching, and racial segregation, which shapes many issues today.

EJI provides research and recommendations to assist advocates and policymakers in the critically important work of criminal justice reform. We publish reports, discussion guides, and other educational materials, and our staff conduct educational tours and presentations for thousands of students, teachers, faith leaders, professional associations, community groups, and international visitors every year.
