Our hope is that your donation and love will help build and operate a home, and a free, vocational and primary school for over 600 vulnerable children. It will provide meals, clothes, medical care,vocational training, community potable water, and an HIV/AIDS prevention program. Your love in action will also provide scholarships to the majority of these students.These scholarships will cover their tuition, supplies, administration, health care, and other services
Potential Long Term Impact
Our projected aim is that the vocational and primary school will open to educate students in 2017.With 2017 being the projected aim for the very first class of students from our vocational and primary school endeavor,we are hoping 2015 will see us break ground for the basics needed to begin building the orphanage and a vocation primary school in Kayindu Village:a core water well,toilet facilities,and the center for Volunteer's lodging.Trusting that 2015 has brought about the previous needs
