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.

Solution

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.

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.
