House of Hope aids and educates 250 children. This project will cultivate farmland for nourishment and income for the school/orphanage, and will build a new classroom to expand education resources.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
In the Kyazanga Village, which falls on the trade route to Rwanda, where HIV/AIDS first originated in Uganda, community members and children are living in extreme poverty. The House of Hope provides aid and education to the orphans of the area, most of whom lost their parents due to HIV related illnesses. However, limited resources currently prevent House of Hope from extending its efforts and providing more children adequate nutrition, clean water, medical care, and education.
How will this project solve this problem?
Nourish International will work with the village to cultivate farmland and construct a water tank to provide sustainable nourishment, fresh water, and income for the House of Hope. The project will also expand the school by building a new classroom.
Potential Long Term Impact
The children will learn how to maintain a garden to have a steady source of nutrients. With more food, more students and orphans can be supported, and by expanding the school, more students will have the opportunity to higher education levels.
