Summary

To provide a boarding home setting to educate orphaned children, providing them with the basic skills to become self-sufficient and escape child labor, prostitution, and death by poverty and AIDS.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

One out of every 6 Ugandan children is an orphan. The Great Aubrey School in Tororo has a population of 384 children and counting. Another 400 children fostered in the community attend school. AIDS has robbed them of parents. Poverty and lack of education can rob them of a future and even of life itself. Efforts by the community energized by a local Catholic priest have given them hope: The generosity of others can help them realize that hope by providing safe housing for vulnerable young girls.

How will this project solve this problem?

The goal of the project is to build a girls dormitory. Currently, the girls are vulnerable due to the location of the school near an industrial site.

Potential Long Term Impact

The new facility will enable the well-trained staff to continue as moral and ethical role models to teach by example while providing safety, education, food and medical supplies.
