Summary

The center cares for 900 AIDS orphans and street kids in rural Uganda, but the children's opportunities are limited by the almost total lack of transportation. A school bus will end their isolation.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

These motivated children have thrived under the most difficult circumstances. Because they are given an excellent education as well as care and love, the children have excelled academically. They need reliable transportation to compete with others on a national level. By joining in cultural events, music, art, athletic and scholastic competitions, the children will broaden their horizons. Only then can they reach their full potential as future leaders of their community and their country.

How will this project solve this problem?

These children have excelled academically under very difficult circumstances. We will buy a used school bus so they can compete on a national level with more privileged children.

Potential Long Term Impact

The center will be a major factor in regional economic and social development. It will support education, including HIV/AIDS education and job training. It will empower women and slow the out-migration of youth by providing access to non-farm jobs.
