Mentor Orphans Africa is non-governmental, not for profit organization that was established to help support orphaned and vulnerable children access basic needs i.e. better health services, education, and shelter among others. MOA fosters a dignified and protected life for children who have fallen victim to the scourge of poverty, solitude and are at the risk of HIV/AIDS. We aim at restoring hope and lobby opportunities for OVC in Uganda.
The population of Uganda estimated at 35.4 million persons and population growth, the Orphans and Vulnerable Children Situation Analysis Report, 2009 estimated that nearly half (48%) of all Ugandan orphans are a result of HIV/AIDS. Up to 43% of all children (7.3 million) live in moderately vulnerable situation, while 8% (1.3 million) live in critically vulnerable situation. Approximately 14% of children in Uganda below 18 years of age are orphans, among which 20% of them are aged 6-17 years.
The project targets to contribute to the scaling down of the level of vulnerability in Wakiso District by acquiring a 5 acre piece of land for establishing a permanent support school that can hold a capacity of 300 children. Implementation will be done in three years.
The project will scale down the level of vulnerability in Wakiso district by feeding, skilling, educating and housing 300 less fortunate, and vulnerable children.
