Counselors will be able to conduct therapy in private rooms, English teachers will be able to take on more students and we can include more children in our kids' programs. project reportread updates from the field

This project will sustain and enhance HOCW's adult education program. Refugees arrive in Uganda having lived in conflict areas most of their lives and have not had the opportunity to access basic education services nor are they prepared for work in their new home country. HOCW provides English classes, basic literacy, & job training for 120 refugees. This project will expand the existing program by building an additional classroom and a computer lab as well as allowing us to hire 3 instructors. project reportread updates from the field
