Our Projects

Our newest way to help is by setting up individual children with US Sponsors that pay for their educational expenses. The children have been hand selected as the most vulnerable in two areas: 

  • The slums of Kampala, Ugandan capital city

  • Bugiri, a small village on the Kenyan border

Otherwise they face the very real possibility of a lifetime poverty. 

Our primary commitment is to offer all children an equal opportunity to quality education. Learning fuels innovation, promotes self-sustainability, creates jobs and drives economic growth. We strive to equip children of all ages with the skills they need to better their quality of life in Uganda and build shared prosperity.

 

Education in Uganda is not free. It is a luxury. We have plucked a handful of children from the slums of the capital and the most rural and poverty stricken locations to be sponsored by anyone willing to help. We have built schoolhouses and provide books and supplies to assist the teachers and community members in maintaining what we, collectively with the Ugandan people, are building in this beautiful country. 

We believe that the transformative power of education can only be successful

through the joint efforts of partners willing to make positive changes in children's lives.

Adequate and clean water supply is a fundamental need and human right. Water related diseases have been a major problem within African villages for a very long time. Having access to clean water has considerable health and economic benefits to households and individuals. 

Clean water is critical to the goal of education. Healthy kids go to and stay in school.

Chronic undernutrition affects some 215 million people in sub-Saharan Africa, or 43 percent of the population. The most commercially farmed vegetables are spring onions, lettuce, spinach, carrots, onions, tomatoes, hot and sweet peppers, green beans, okra and cucumber. 

Vegetable and fruit gardens produce more than just food. It promotes community development, creates jobs and offers a space where youth can meet, learn, share and build social awareness. 

The world is becoming smaller and easier to navigate. Increasing the international and national investment in the health systems and child health care, in particular is essential

 

Our goals for medical care would not be possible without the partners and affiliate networks throughout the continent and world. Our direct presence has spanned across three countries and helped over 3,000 communities through surgeries, infections, vaccinations, pain relief, disease treatment and healthy living education.
