Summary

This project will pay school tuition for 618 children orphaned by HIV/AIDS, providing enough exercise books, pens and pencils.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Hundreds of thousands of families in Wakiso District of Uganda have lost breadwinners to HIV/AIDS. It has the highest numbers of orphans, and people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS and are stuck in continuous poverty cycles. Orphans who lost their parents to HIV/AIDS and are currently staying with their needy relatives and helpless grand parents lack school tuition, scholastic materials and health care.

How will this project solve this problem?

We operate a primary schools for 216 vulnerable children that provide meals, clothes, medical care, and have HIV/AIDS prevention program. In partnership with other schools, we also support 402 orphaned students with school tuition, scholastic materials and health care.

Potential Long Term Impact

We will educate over 1000 vulnerable orphans, especially children infected and affected by HIV/AIDS, who cannot afford an education at the primary and secondary level so as to reduce systemic poverty in their families by creating community-focused businesses, jobs, and social institutions.
