Challenge

Thousands of families in Bulemezi,in Kaindu luwero district,Uganda have lost breadwinners to HIV/AIDS and drunkards, and are stuck in systemic poverty cycles where children lack access to healthcare,education, food, and shelter.Your support helps fight poverty by empowering these children,especially girls, through free,equality education,healthcare, and basic needs.A girl student,Nuliat, says,"We were suffering in the villages..I am very happy to be in school where I forget about being an orphan

Solution

Our hope is that your donation and love will help build and operate a home, and a free, vocational and primary school for over 600 vulnerable children. It will provide meals, clothes, medical care,vocational training, community potable water, and an HIV/AIDS prevention program. Your love in action will also provide scholarships to the majority of these students.These scholarships will cover their tuition, supplies, administration, health care, and other services

Long-Term Impact

Our projected aim is that the vocational and primary school will open to educate students in 2017.With 2017 being the projected aim for the very first class of students from our vocational and primary school endeavor,we are hoping 2015 will see us break ground for the basics needed to begin building the orphanage and a vocation primary school in Kayindu Village:a core water well,toilet facilities,and the center for Volunteer's lodging.Trusting that 2015 has brought about the previous needs
