by Hope for Orphans and Widows Community Association-HOWCA


This project will pay for school fees, uniforms, books and pens to 100 disadvantaged children (orphans) in Lira District, Northern Uganda who have been so much affected by 20 years of conflict in northern Uganda which left behind many needy Children that are unable to attend formal education because of Lack of funds for fees and other requirements at School.

Twenty years conflict in Northern Uganda caused by Lord Resistance Army rebels (terrorist) activities has caused so much set back in Development, Standard of living and above all many children (Orphans) whose parents were either murdered (massacred) in cold blood during the insurgency or lost to HIV Aids epidemic can not even attend primary or elementary school because they lack school fees and other educational supplies like school Uniforms, Books, pens and pencils.


We shall raise funds yearly to support these children at school beginning from primary level to pay for their education needs till they become self sustaining. This will be the greatest gift these children will receive because Education is the key to success and Children are the future, they need to be educated and be loved. we are also giving them good Counsel as some of them are mentally disturbed, frustrated and depressed because they have no one at home who takes good care of them.

Long-Term Impact

The Project will educate 100 vulnerable Children most of them are total Orphans who will come out with different skills, professions, sound and positive minded and these are the leaders of tomorrow.
