Healthier AIDS Orphans and Caregivers in Uganda

$2,460 $9,860
Raised Remaining


Provision of milk cows to older people caring for HIV/AIDS orphans through a 'pass on the gift' scheme resulting in improved livelihoods and healthier children and carergivers.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Project beneficiaries are children orphaned by AIDS and their adult caregiver living in Kampala District where 50% of people live on less than $1 a day. AIDS has resulted in over 2 million orphans, most of whom are looked after by older relatives. This increases the pressure on an already vulnerable section of society, making the provision of basic needs such as food, shelter, education, clothing and medical care very difficult, although love and affection flow from grandparent to grandchild.

How will this project solve this problem?

The provision of cows, training in animal husbandry, finance & project management & provision of technical support in animal health care. Each beneficiary will pass on the first female calf to another continually increasing the reach of the project.

Potential Long Term Impact

Our project supplies cows to older people increasing their incomes and providing milk allowing them to better provide for AIDS orphans in their care as well as for themselves.
