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.


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.

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.
